It's been too long...

#43 I am thankful for continued provision in the face of...well...nothing. It is amazing to see God work. He has provided so much with so little to work with!

#44 thankful for the means to finally go to the Dr. I found out that my BP was nearly at stroke level and now I am on meds and trying to find ways to reduce my stress level and that all important bottom number.

#45 thankful for my husband and his love for this family.

OH....SO very thankful today!!!

#42 - I am so very very thankful for my two beautiful daughters. I am thankful for their health, for their very life, for how they make me feel when I watch them sleeping, how they make me feel when I watch them arguing!! :-) How they make me feel just to know they are alive on this planet and that God chose me to be their mother!!!!

My heart is breaking for the Steven Curtis Chapman family today. They have lost their youngest precious gift of God. I cannot even imagine the grief. I cannot imagine.

~God...please hug this family extra close through this tragedy. Show them your grace, love and strength in a MIGHTY way today!!!~

trying to be thankful today...a note to God.

Dear God...
So much crashing much not making many questions...why God?

Thank you for the trials!

Thank you for the upheaval!

Thank you for the confusion!

Thank you for the tension!

Thank you for the heartache!

Thank you for the tears!

Thank you for the fear!

Thank you for the pit in the center of my stomach!

Thank you for the black cloud that is bearing down on us!

Thank you for the feelings of utter despair and not knowing what next round of heartache tomorrow will bring!!

Thank you for not letting us drop dead in the middle of it from the shear stress!
I know it will all bring you glory some how...some time...

I wish I knew the outcome.

I wish I knew when it would end.

But I thank you in the meantime!!

Thank you for the email from someone that I will get telling me how all that we have endured over the last 19 months has sustained them through something!! I guess that is your purpose in all of this. I hope that it is at least part of it!!!

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge inthe shadow of your wings until this disaster has passed. I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me!
Psalms 57:1-2

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield. Psalms 5:11-12

But you are a sheild around me O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the Lord I cry alooud, and he answers me from his Holy hill. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me . Psalms 3:3-5

#38 for today. My dear husband and I are celebrating 13 years of marriage. I'd do it all over again baby!!!!

#39 watching my girls play together in the front yard. They love each other so much!

#40 Watching Aly's amazment at something as simple as an Ant bed. She could squat and watch it for hours on end!!

#41 Seeing things fresh and anew just by watching my girls discover the world around ant, twig, leaf and blade of grass at a time.
