I have seen several blogs that carry a 'Thankful Thursday' theme with them, so I am going to make the effort to join in. I know that I am thankful for the blessings in my life, but not as thankful as I should be. And with all the lament I have shared on this blog, I wanted to share the joys as well.
I am so thankful for all that God has done in my life. I do cry out to him to make the wrong things right again, but when I see where he has brought me spiritually in the past several years I can't help but be grateful. My eyes are much more open than they ever were.
I am always thankful for Casey and for Miles, and I am still amazed at two such awesome blessings I can call mine. This morning (Thursday is Casey's day off) we were making pancakes and Miles was dancing in the kitchen to a fun song his Uncle 'Bobo' wrote. The sun was coming through the window, the coffee was brewing...it was a moment in which I had to stop and look around and just take it in.
I'm definitely thankful for the small moments. I feel that's where God blesses and teaches me most.
