The last few weeks all 3 of us have been sick and with little time to rest... so being able to be home for an entire day was amazing!
Many of you have done an amazing job at posting on facebook all that you are thankful for, and I have so enjoyed reading them and rejoicing and praising the Lord alongside of you all. Those of you who have been faithfully reading have heard me say this time and time again... I often write down what I am thankful for especially in times when it seems like my world is falling apart and I am hurting. It really does help create contentment. Paul writes in Philippians 4:11-13I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. AND in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
So a couple of months ago, I decided I needed my thankful notes to be visible... I needed to always be reminded how much I have to be thankful for... more important now as the weariness for our journey has moments of really taking it's toll on me. So I put Adam to work and this is what we made...
This is our "Wall of Thankfulness"
I designed it and Adam helped me create it and bring it to life! It has been so much fun adding to it and even seeing what our friends and family write as they visit. What are you thankful for?
