Joy Dare

It’s been a while since I’ve listed some gratitude and it is something I need to do.

We’ve had some sickness, some selfishness, some loneliness.

And it’s easy to take those things and look inward and hold onto them and let them be the eyes that I look through.

There have been some challenging days.

But today,

Today I choose to look at all the good {and there is so much to see} to look at His grace {and I am thankful He continues to cover me in it, especially when I don’t deserve it} to look at His peace {and allow myself to wallow in THAT – not my self-pity} to look at the hope {and let it lead the way}…

Today I am thankful for:

– coffee with cinnamon creamer

– the chirping birds

– my son’s temp finally broke

– coffee with cinnamon creamer

– broken cat-tails all over the back yard by some curious little boys

– memories of our sweet Lulu

– mother/son dance with this handsome fella

– coffee with cinnamon creamer

– sweet messages from friends

– Psalm 91:14 ‘Because Cami loves me, says the Lord, I will rescue her; I will protect her, for she acknowledges my name. She will call upon me, and I will answer her.’

{When our pastor’s wife spoke last weekend at our women’s retreat, she told us about placing our name – or the name of who we are praying for – in the actual scripture. I like how personal it makes it}

– exciting house news {I’ll keep you posted}

– another day closer to our forever home.

How about you, what are you thanking God for today?
