So I was just reading this morning over at Heavenly Homemakers, and I realized that I should join in and have my own little 'Gratituesday' right here. What better way to start off the second day of a challenging week but to praise the Lord for the blessings He has poured out upon my life.
This is really good. I started out today sort of dreading the next 6 weeks, and here I am trying to choose between the different beauties He has gifted me with.
1.) My family. We are human. We are not perfect. But my family here in this house loves Jesus. And each time I hear them pray and find them soaking up the Word of God, I realize how good I've got it.
Thank You, Lord.
2.) The rain. I've been struggling with this one. I'm ready for sunshine, and yet I know that the rain is a blessing too. Tiny droplets of water hanging off evergreen branches... need I say more?
Thank You, Jesus.
3.) The opportunity to learn. Again, a current challenge, and still I know it is a blessing to come away with knowledge of the world the Lord has put me in.
Thank You, God.
4.) The Word of God. I'm reading it now, and I am so, so overwhelmed with God's greatness. Thank you for your Word, Father!
Thank You, Sovereign Maker.
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ... Thank You, Abba, Father!
