Thankful Thursday

"In everything, give thanks."

At the encouragement of my friend, Tiffany, I am taking time to be thankful.

  • I am thankful that God's love is new every morning, that I can't wear it out by making mistakes--and then making the same stupid mistake again. And again.

  • I am thankful God's love is steadfast, that it isn't a wishy-washy "maybe he does, maybe he doesn't" kind of love.

  • I am thankful God's love is unconditional, even though I struggle to comprehend a love without a lot of if-thens attached to it.

And I am thankful for the simple things that really aren't so simple.

  • My seven-year-old's smile

  • Falling asleep in my husband's arms

  • Hearing my daughters' laughter as they sit up too late at night talking

  • Seeing my son embrace his wife

  • Friends who have my back and believe in my dreams as much as I do

Thankfulness. An antidote to phariseeism.

And thank you, Iris at Sting My Heart, for hosting Thankful Thursday.
