Thankful

For today and that it is about way more than bunnies, eggs, and candy.

More than thankful that he rose again.
More than thankful for faith.
More than thankful that I can pray when I just don't know what to do.

More than thankful for our families. 
More then thankful for our friends.
More than thankful for the babies that will be here in December.
More than thankful for the hard times.
More than thankful for the trials.

A friend this week posted that he was thankful that gas was so expensive and that he had a mortgage that he had to pay each month because it meant he had a home and car. {He said it much more eloquently this was a small portion and he had a great point}  I know these seem like silly things to say and it is never about finding joy in our material possessions but, all to often we forget to look at what the bigger picture is in our complaints to God. Thanks, D for the prospective. 

Thankful.
It's a pretty lovely place.

Amen, I feel that way also so thankful that our God reigns. So thankful for my children and that they continue to be the greatest blessing ever. Thankful that I still have much to learn and that tomorrow is a celebration of all things that matter. Our God is an awesome God
