This week I’m thankful for:
1). Proverbs 21:1 “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.” This applies to our kids’ hearts too.
2). I Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” We have the choice to live a life of contentment, to decide when enough is enough, to take joy in simple things.
3). Friends who bring me flowers because I’ve had a bad day.
4). Romans 8:18 “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
5). A good chiropractor and mega amounts of magnesium, both of which have helped my daughter’s headaches to subside.
6). The rare moments (too quick and rare to capture on camera) of sibling love between the two teenagers Bruce and I share space with.
7). In the words of my son, “Other religions are so complicated. Christianity is simple.” I love the truth of this and the fact that my kid knows it and can articulate it.
