One by one, I want to number the things for which I give thanks, the things that remind me that I'm the daughter of a loving Father.
The thing that I love about this is that they do not depend on the circumstances of my life! His goodness doesn't change. I want to hold onto the idea that even in the worst storm, I could continue this list, calling out the ways He shows and declares His tender care.
Today I bought a journal that I intend to turn into a Gratitude Journal for the family. Especially this month, I want all of us to have the place and opportunity to write things as they come to mind.
Here's part of my continuing list...
great discussion with the boys at our devotional time tonight
reading Little Pilgrim's Progress with Theo (and whoever wants to listen) and hearing his observations
the blessing of being able to buy the groceries I need
my preacher husband. He is so faithful, to me and to the Church and to the Word.
a yummy dinner of sausage ratatouille. Good, good, good.
looking forward to my birthday this weekend! I've always loved my birthday. And I share it with THREE wonderful sisters at church!!!
Blessing to you tonight!
In case you're wondering, the photos from yesterday and today are from Mix and Match Day at the boys' school last week!
