Thanksgiving only a week ago! This week has been a busy flurry of activity for us. I feel so very thankful though. Things have been busy and I knew in the days leading up to this week that it would be like this. I was thinking about it as I wrote my devotional for Laced with Grace for last week and that has stayed in my head and heart in the past few days. God is so good! I just feel so thankful today that He is faithful and is hearing and answering my prayers. I've been praying for His help and that I won't feel stressed. Things aren't getting done that I would have liked to have gotten done or that I would have done on a more "normal" week....for example, I have a "Marriage Monday" post in draft mode, I haven't finished my Christmas letter, I need to make some calls, and I have some gifts left to buy. I made a list over the weekend and have been able to mark off several things from the list each day. I have had a happy heart and made fun memories with my husband and son. I feel daily that He has given me joy and calmness in the situations I have faced. It has been such a blessing.
I am thankful for...
~ my husband and I have been married now for eight and a half years as of Dec. 2. :)
~ having fun with my son as we "raced" Daddy to the truck, made up a story as we were going home, and pretended to be characters from a book.
~ getting to live my dream of being a stay-at-home Mom and doing things at Caleb's school.
~ "low tire" light in my car. It came on today which was an unexpected happening for my day. But it had a nail in the tire and was very low on air so I'm glad the little light warned me.
~ going to the library.
I am having a book giveaway for Karen Kingsbury's book Miracles. I will choose FIVE winners so you have a good chance of winning! See the previous post to enter or click here.
What are you thankful for this week? Whatever you are doing, don't forget to take a minute to stop and be thankful! Thankful Thursday is at Women Taking a Stand today. I'm publishing this before I know the theme because I'm not sure I'll get it done if I wait till tomorrow...another full day ahead but I know God will help me through.
Have a day of blessings!
