As my girls and I were delivering newspapers this afternoon I was thinking about what I am thankful for today. Here is what came to mind….
- Cuddling with my son after he sneaks into our room before it’s time to start the day. He keeps me so warm! When he isn’t wiggly I like to wrap my arms around him, pray over him and thank the Lord that he blessed me with a son.
- Our paper route…. no, it isn’t my favorite job but the Lord continually shows me what a blessing it can be. We have had the paper route for 4.5 years; ever since Jonathan was about 9 months old. Our 4 oldest all help and are paid based on the amount of bundles they fold. So, the blessing is being able to help contribute financially to the family and doing it with my kids. They are learning: work get paid, don’t work don’t get paid!
- The Scriptures! I am so blessed to be able to get in the Word everyday and read the Scriptures with my children. There is so much life, hope and faithful instruction in God’s Word.
Oh I just thought of another one…I get to go to a women’s conference tomorrow (Fri) evening through Saturday evening. I don’t typically like going to women’s conference but I’ve heard this one is different then the kind that I’ve been to in the past. I know several other women that will be attending and am looking forward to a night away.
