I'm thankful for...

my two beautiful, healthy boys who make me smile every day.

my hard-working, handsome husband who makes me laugh.

my mom and dad who have supported my family, almost entirely, for the past 6 months.

finding a church that is founded on Scripture alone and seeks to glorify God in everything. It truly depicts a biblical sound body of believers.

God's Word that continually reminds me of His promises.

God's Word that continually reminds me how much I need His mercy and grace.

God's Word that continually reminds me that this world is not my home.

A God who specializes in the details, all the while keeping the world and everything in it in balance.

A God who is sovereign and loves me.

A God who has a plan and perfect will for my family.

Sometimes, during stressful or hard times it's important to remember what life is about. It's important to remember that there are so many things to be thankful for. During the past (almost) 7 months, I have had to stop and remind myself of all of the blessings that God has graciously given me. I have enough and God has promised to provide for my needs and my family's needs. I am abundantly blessed! I cannot express what a wonderful God I serve!

It's so much easier to complain about our situation and the things we don't have, than to praise Him for those things He has seen fit to bless. Thanks for the reminder that no matter our circumstance, we should continually praise Him with thanksgiving!
