Happy clementine season, guys! They're in the grocery stores! Okay, are you ready for Thanksgiving week?!! After a weekend of seeing Edward and Bella on the big screen (with a husband who was just as excited as me), filling up a shopping cart with essentials and luxuries and being able to pay for it, and seeing my little one playing happily at Grandma's house like such a big kid, I'm feeling very thankful. Yes. Dates and sufficient funds and cheerful babies. These are definitely things I am thankful for. This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful to be right where I am. Thank You Lord, for putting me right here. Thank You for placing me in this phase of family, with this husband, with these responsibilities, in this body, in this house, in this town.
I'm thankful for specifics..
That traffic is not a part of my life.
That we don't have too many places to go. Home is where I thrive.
That I feel so much better, stronger, and more energetic than last year.
That my husband loves me and wants the best for me. (even when I forget this)
For a girl just like me, right next to me.
For the time after dinner when I do the dishes and listen to them play wrestlemania.
For people that I love talking with.
For 2 bathrooms in our house. Upstairs and down.
For good food. For healing.
That I miss my daughter after she goes to bed.
For a simple, sweet daily routine. (routine! I love it.)
For a husband that I respect and trust and enjoy.
For the fun little shows that are part of our time together in the evening.
For baking. For banana bread.
For enough time to take showers and sleep.
For peace that stays with us, even though we have problems.
That God is in control of all the intricate functions of our bodies.
For a family full of brothers and sisters in Christ.
For hard work, and the initiative to do it.
That we don't have too much.
For His faithfulness.
For strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
For blessings all mine, with 10,000 beside.
(From Spurgeon. I love this.)
What are you thankful for about where you are right now?
Oh, and last week I said that I have something to tell you...
Come back tomorrow and find out!
