Thankful for the oldest (she's 7 already!): I'm thankful for her funny spirit and her desire to always do what is right. She is a natural leader, a bookworm, and a student at heart. Ok, she's ME! :)
I'm thankful for the middle one (almost 5 and headed to kindergarten): She's quiet sometimes, so people outside our family don't always see her goofy side. She loves to play alone and use her imagination. She will make a good mom someday because she has a compassionate heart. She is tender and loving. She loves to organize and do the dishes. That's a GREAT reason for me to be thankful! :)
I'm thankful for my little boy too: He loves fish and bugs and worms and all living things (except spiders). He loves food (midnight pantry raider!) and he loves hugs. He is a chatter-bug and a charmer. He's adorable.
I'm also thankful for God's provision.
He has given me so many opportunities lately, it's been almost overwhelming. I'd like to share about that more tomorrow. How God met me at Write to Publish. I haven't really shared much about it yet because I wasn't sure how to approach it. But, after 15 months of pursuing God's purposes for me in ministry, He is beginning to open some doors in amazing ways. It's taken patience, perseverance and trusting God's guidance to get to this point.
And now that I'm looking at the things on my plate, I'm so thankful that He provides the strength to do His work. I want to be all about HIM and not about just being busy. I want to keep my focus on Christ IN ME. That's what it's all about!
