I think by saying I was going to be thankful for something everyday in November has had the opposite effect. I have been grumpy and not thankful. I feel with all of the wonderful blessings I have been given, I have turned into a miser who just doesn't want to share at all. How sad is that, to want to write a thankful post and then not share it. So this morning, as I looked all around me for something to be thankful for, it was work and not easy, this is what I came up with this morning.
I am thankful for coffee in bed, and having that bit of time with R. before he goes to work.
I am thankful for God's word that reminds me who I am and that I have been called by God for a reason.
I am thankful that I get to stay home and teach the boys and that I have had the blessing of being a mother.
So today I will end with the verse that helps me not be grumpy and reminds me about who I am and what I am and what the final goal is for life.
"Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
