My daughter Peyton came home from the hospital on Saturday afternoon. THAT is something to be incredibly thankful for! We thought we might have to go back to the ER yesterday, but we avoided that! Praise God!
I can't even begin to express how thankful I am for all of the people who have been praying for Peyton through her illness.
We've gone through a few really difficult things since coming home, and I am deeply grateful for your continued prayers over those situations.
I am grateful for the incredible support I've received through the blogging community. Love you all!
Back to normal business...I am thankful for the opportunity to do an ongoing adoption fundraiser in my Etsy shop for my friend Jessica. Buy a coffee sleeve for $4 and I will give Jessica's family $3 per sleeve sold. I have given Jessica a total of $57 through this fundraiser! I am grateful, as is she, for your generosity and support! I am honored to be contributing to this very worthy cause!
As always, I am so thankful to have an amazing church home. I've received enormous support through church. We are truly blessed.
I am also grateful that, through my church, I have been linked up with some amazing women of God. I am so grateful to have been brought into a huddle where this small group of four women has a mission of discipling others.
I am grateful for the support of my Sisterhood family at church.
I am so incredibly thankful for a wonderful family. For all they do to support us, I am so grateful.
I am so very thankful for my amazing husband and for all he does to support this family. I am also blessed and grateful that he works with me to help encourage me in the things that I need to build me up both spiritually and as a person in general.
I am thankful for God's provision. My word for this year is endure. I often feel weak in this area - falling into the temptation of complaining about the things that aren't right in my life. I am thankful for the strength that God gives me to endure - to press on through these feelings. I still feel very weak, but I'm trying.
I am so very thankful for God who is always faithful, loving, merciful, and never-failing. I am thankful for His grace when I fail and for always being there to show me the right path. I am thankful for his gracious healing, for inspiration, and for hearing my prayers. I am thankful for the patience He grants me when the answers to those prayers seem to take a lot longer than expected or they don't come in the way I expected. I am grateful for the abundance of goodness which has blessed our family this week. I am grateful for new mercies for me each morning.
Psalm 9:1 (NIV)
I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
