I am so thankful!
I am so thankful to Lord for being so patient with me and giving me just what I need for every situation. The other night when #4 had her melt down (it was big) I was near tears myself and just felt very overwhelmed because of our family schedule. We are a family that eats dinner at the table every night and it is usually my favorite time to connect with everyone. Well, with all the sport schedules we have been eating on the run. I felt like we were not connecting and spending that quality time. That very night we had an amazing storm come in and we all sat outside and just watched the lightning storm - it was amazing and just what we needed. So, I am thankful for watching lightning storms on the porch with my kids on my lap, oohing and ahhing at God's creation.

Happy Thankful Thursday!!
This week as we prepare for the celebration of the resurrection I am thankful beyond words. I do not think I have ever been so aware of what Christ did for me on that day - the path he paved for me. I am humbled, broken and beyond grateful. In light of what he did for me how could I not give Him my life? He is Worthy, He is Holy and Righteous. His ways are not our ways - Praise Him!
Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice that lead to life for me. Amen

I usually do Thankful Thursday at the end of the day but I just can't wait!
God you are so good, I am so thankful to be one of your children.
1.) I am thankful for worship music!
2.) I am thankful that Justin is going to Africa in May! That's right, it is booked and we could not be more excited. Our excitement comes from knowing this is from God and we get to be apart of His work - Woohoo! I could go on and on and will soon - I can not wait to share the story of how this came to be.
3.) I am thankful that my 2 yr old went potty on the potty today!!! This deserves great gratitude! She was almost potty trained at one point and she just decided to quit - then we started up again and she actually fell in the toilet - I thought we would be wearing pull ups into the teen years with the way she feared the toilet - but yay, today she went!
4.) I am thankful for laughter - ya know when you laugh so hard your abs hurt the next day - the best work out ever!
Have an awesome Thankful Thursday - what are you thankful for?
