"Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice." (1 Chronicles 16:8-10, NIV)
And the sweetness of this moment when we realized Mercie had crawled up in Papa's chair and promptly fell asleep on him.
And the hysterical laughter that accompanied a fun day Megan and I shared as I taught her to sew. She finally got the hang of it and with a little coaching from me, she made Mikaela and Mercie the cutest skirts.
I am thankful for all 3 of my daughters. Melissa and Megan are 12 months apart and I am thankful that they have always been good friends. They are missing their baby sister, Ashlie, terribly and are ready for her to be home. So is her Mama!
I am thankful that Sawyer was OK after he fell and hit his head on their coffee table last week. Ashlie had to take him to the ER and he had to have stitches, but I am so glad it wasn't any worse than that. She sent me this picture from her phone while they were in the ER in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Poor little fella...
I am also thankful for his big brother, Bryton. I am so ready to see these little fellas and am so grateful that the job their daddy is on right now is almost over and they will be heading home where they belong!
God is so good. He has blessed me abundantly and I am so grateful to Him. There are so many things that we take for granted and I am determined to do my best to be more appreciative for even the small things. I am thankful that for now, my family is all healthy and able to be together.
My precious friend, Charlotte, was swept up in the arms of Jesus early Tuesday morning and ushered into her heavenly home for all eternity. She fought a courageous battle with cancer but God called her home and she doesn't have to fight anymore. She has been restored back to health. She is tired no more and she is free of all pain and suffering. Charlotte is seeing our precious Lord face-to-face in all of His glory. Thank you, Lord, for the blessed assurance that we have of life eternal with You.
