Happy Thanksgiving

fall8

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

Psalm 95:2-3

Happy Thanksgiving- from our family to yours. This Thanksgiving I am thankful for many things… the precious miracle baby in my womb that is a blessing and gift from God alone. In no way could I have conjured up such a gift. I struggled to get pregnant and almost gave up hope. But He waited until I had lost confidence in myself so I could truly see How great He is at gift-giving.

My daughter lights up my life. As she grows, I see snippets of her lovely little soul. When I hear her speak her tiny little prayers, my heart praises God for what he is doing in her life despite my very non-perfect parenting. I have so much hope in her future and love getting to be her mother.

What can I say about my husband? He is my best friend, my confidant, and my greatest romance. As the years continue we have both achieved our first gray hairs together. Yippee. We have our seasons, but one thing remains the same: I love him more each day and continue to learn more about his heart as time goes on. I respect him more each day. I trust that God is continuing to work in his life.

Other things… the home we don’t deserve but get to dwell in. The job my husband has been blessed with which provides food for our table and allows me to work at home with my daughter. The church family I get to enjoy on a regular basis and that feeds my soul. The neighborhood we live in that has been free of violence or fear. The hardships I have endured that give me a glimpse into my need for Jesus and compassion for the hurting world, along with refining me to be more humble and rely on God. The family I have been blessed with- my father and mother, the step-parents I have inherited, in-laws, sisters and brothers, grandparents… so many people that add joy to my life in ways I could never know. The health I have for now… how often I forget what freedom it is to live without daily pain. While many of these blessings may not last forever, or for even another week, they are things I can be thankful for today.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

    It’s always nice to hear what others are thankful for. Sometimes I forget to be thankful for the little things that are really important.

    It really is a great time to sit back and reflect on the many blessings we enjoy. I hope we can remember to do it more than on Thanksgiving though.
