I will give thanks

What a blessing to give thanks.   In the midst of the chaos of my world I am learning to look for the things I am grateful for.  To find the blessings in the everyday, that if I were not intentional I might miss. 

Interestingly, the news this evening ran a story on thanking people and how thanking people changes us and makes us better people. If that's true, how much more does intentionally thanking God change us.

I look forward to Monday's and stopping by the blogs dedicated to giving thanks.  I find myself lost in the gratitude, moved to tears as I experience thanks from the eyes of my sisters in Christ.

I will give thanks.... 

for the sweetness of a feverish child

for the unselfishness of my sister, to drive over just so I could purge my frustrations

innocent questions from my children, like "does God wear underwear"

medical insurance to cover $500 in prescriptions- in one day

completed projects

double decker chocolate chip cookies

dry pull-ups in the morning (not mine people.. my children's)

songs on the radio that meet my need

Psalms and Proverbs

a signed lease

time to paint my fingernails, and have them dry


second chances

vacation planning

the un-tameable energy burst when a 4 year old's fever breaks

God, who has no problem multi-tasking on my behalf

my teenage son's wisdom

what 'ya thankful for?

  1. This is a great list! I especially like the whole "God can certainly multi-task" realization...I never thought about it like that - but you're right :)

    p.s. Driving over to your house is actually very makes me happy!
