This little beauty of mine turned 9 over a week ago and I completely forgot to post about it…
….because I was wallowing in a sea of discontentment so deep that I had become blind to the very blessings right in front of me….my children, my family, my salvation….
Lord forgive me and thank You.
Thank You for your patience when life’s issues overwhelm and my eyes are turned from You, thank You for Your love, grace and mercy when the road seems long and unforgiving, thank You for allowing me to be a light, no matter how small, in the dark. Thank You for my children and especially my 9 year old daughter who I forgot to celebrate on her special day because I allowed a spirit of despair to temporarily take hold, but thank You Lord for Your mercies that are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness!!
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
