This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Late Grains of Gratitude

I am late, but still grateful for all of the blessings the LORD has put in my life.

I am grateful for the three people who have the most to do with me being a mom: my husband, my Roo and my Boo. How different my life would be without them. How quiet and empty. I am grateful to be a mom.

I am grateful for our weather--ours has been gorgeous and we've been spared so many times. There are tornadoes and cyclones and earthquakes, weather and forces of nature changing people's lives in the blink of an eye. We've been fortunate to miss out on the damage. We are praying for those who have been forced to deal with these things.

While I really enjoy the boys' activities, I am grateful that there will be a small pause in the running. My hope is to give the boys a small break from school before more joyful chaos resumes. Roo will be attending a "day camp" type situation for four weeks for six hours a day and will not be working formally on school. Boo will be doing a short version of the "camp" experience and so will resume a scaled down version of school. I am grateful for the flexibility that homeschooling has afforded our family.

I am grateful for all the family and friends who daily share God's love with me.

What are you grateful for?
