One by one


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

0122
reading Little Pilgrim's Progress with Theo (and whoever wants to listen) and hearing his observations

0123
the blessing of being able to buy the groceries I need

0124
my preacher husband. He is so faithful, to me and to the Church and to the Word.

0125
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!

  1. Kit - I just hung a long piece of paper (I hope it's not long enough!) to be our wall of thanks for this month. Thanks for the inspiration.

    And I was reminded of these verses, which I wrote at the bottom of our "wall": I Thes 5:16-18 "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." We exercise faith, loving and obeying the Lord by giving thanks. In this we do well!
