Thankful Tuesdays...4

So, I am a bit ashamed because I haven't felt very thankful today.  It's been a tough week- a stressful week- one of those weeks that take the wind out of your sails.  I was thinking about what I was thankful for and I kept thinking of things to whine about.  I knew that was not a very Christ-like attitude, but was struggling.  I'm just being honest here.  If I told you I never struggled with my flesh, I'd be lying- and so would you.   

But as I struggled, I just kept thinking about Jesus.  If nothing else to be thankful for, I have JESUS!  That really is enough.  But the more I thought about Jesus, the more thankful I became. 

I thought about being thankful:

  • that even when it appears evil is triumphant; vengeance is mine says the Lord and He can handle it better
  • that my mom is there for me--- even when I am not there for her
  • that God looks at my heart
  • that Rex still puts up with me; and our trials make us stronger
  • for Shayne's hunting buddy- who is willing to spend time with him in the woods
  • for PTO (that's paid time off---- or vacation) ---hurry up Friday
  • that my youngest keeps saying "your hair is pretty mommy" especially when others keep saying "it will grow back"
  • for a peaceful nights sleep ---however few and far between they are
  • that I get to be a Mom, Wife, Sister, Daughter & Friend- what a privilege!
What 'ya thankful for?
