Will you do me a favor? I would love a response….
This has been an interesting (for lack of a better word) year. Our oldest child graduated from our homeschool high school and started college. My husband ruptured his achilles tendon and had to have surgery. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing chemo. We lost a very dear friend to cancer a couple of weeks ago and are praying for several other friends with cancer. Whew….It has been pretty tough at times.
I try to remember to praise Him through the storms and really try to remember the scripture that says ..”the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the Name of the Lord…and.. that He will not give us more than we can handle.
Having said all of that, this is where you come in. I want to share a few praises….things that I am thankful for this past year. Then, I would love for you to share as many praises that you want to share. It can be one or twenty one….whatever. Just please take a minute and share something, big or small.
I am thankful that even though breast cancer is a horrible disease and I hate that my mom has it, I have seen my mom grow in her relationship with Christ. I have seen her cling to Him and put all of her trust in Him. For that, I am thankful. I am thankful that she is my mom.
I am thankful for friends and family that pray. I am thankful for friends who know what you need even when you don’t know it yourself.
I am thankful for three healthy children that are all saved and a husband that loves the Lord and loves me despite all of my faults.
I am thankful that God brought a new family into our lives this year. This family has now become our family. Mr. and Mrs. Buckets of Burlap and their children are gifts from God.
I am thankful that the Lord kept His hand of protection over my family this year. I am thankful that His mercies are new every day and that He is full of love and grace.
Okay, will you please share something with us now? Please, will you give us a chance to praise God with you?
Thanks for sharing.
