It's been a while since I've posted one of these, and I can tell. See, I'm in a bit of a slump right now. I think it's a want-to-be-done-with-school / not-spending-enough-time-with-God / much-much-too-busy slump.
Ever have one of those?
Ugh! I'm struggling through our days, snapping at my kiddos more often than usual, not feeling "inspired" when it comes to dinnertime. And then, by the time bedtime rolls around, I'm exhausted.
Truthfully, I'm not that much fun to be around right now.
So, I'm going to be making some changes around here. One of them just might be to call it quits on the school year today instead of three days from now. (Daring, I know!)
Another is to remember what mindset I'm missing--that of gratitude and thanksgiving.
"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5: 18
"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever." Psalm 136:1
Think we're supposed to be grateful? Yeah, me too.
So, here goes...the latest installment of Thankful on Thursday...and let me please continue to remember to add to it every day!
...Soft green blankets
...A relationship with Jesus, who will always take me back
...My son and his giggles
...My daughter and the way she always grabs my hand to hold it
...My oldest and her confidences shared on a late night
...A healthy body
...Time to walk outdoors in the early morning
Today, I'm choosing gratitude.
What are you thankful for today?
