I am thankful...
for a son who isn't embarrassed to hug his mom, even in public.
for the happy sounds of my daughter singing her heart out while she rearranges magnets on the fridge.
for an overabundance of delicious fresh strawberries from the farmers market.
for the way God sneaks up on me while I'm busy and reminds me of His love.
for friends who call or email me right when I need encouragement.
for the openness of sisters and brothers in Christ who let me see their hearts and the struggles they're going through. We are not alone. We are family.
for the opportunity to love a child who has nothing.
for music that awakens the deepest parts of my soul and moves me to worship.
for a Lord who longs for intimacy with me. More than I can imagine.
"The LORD is faithful to all His promises, and loving towards all He has made.
The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up those who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.
You open Your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise His holy name for ever and ever." Psalm 145:13-16,21
