Today I’m thankful for…
~Soap. We ran out of bath soap at our house for two whole days. I thought it was some sort of tragedy and it felt pretty amazing to finally have soap again. But as I opened one of the 8 packages of soap that we had bought I thought of the millions of people around the world who don’t have soap. Not to mention the millions who don’t have running water or ANY water for that matter. Sometimes I get so very sick of myself and the stuff I have and the things I take for granted.
~My husband. He’s such an amazing father. And he’s an even more amazing husband. Every day he strives to serve me and show me that he loves me. He does a load of dishes at least once a day. He’s solely responsible for feeding and watering the dogs and everything else that needs to be done for them! He runs to the store, without complaint, every single time I ask him too (and I ask alot). He sends me texts that say “I love you” and “hottie”. Every day I see Christ in him more and more. Every day I am so thankful that God saw fit to redeem our lives and our marriage.
~Compassion bloggers. Molly. Kelly. Heather. Shaun (especially his post today). Keely. I’ve cried alot of tears this week as I’ve read their posts. They are in El Salvador with Compassion. I’m thankful for the work of Compassion and for the many people that sacrifice to help change the life of a child.
~This video message from Beth Moore. EXACTLY what I needed to hear!
~My Angel. And all my kiddos. Every single minute of every single day I thank God for blessing me with my December blessings.
~The shut down feature on my computer. Pat and I are off work tomorrow and we’re heading to my parent’s house later today for a three-day weekend! (I’m also thankful for work, for being off work, for my parents and for three-day weekends!) Woo hoo!
Stop over to Grace Alone for more Thankful Thursday.
