He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing,
Sing praises to His name, He forgets not His own.
(words of anonymous Dutch hymn)
A time to give thanks. A time even marked on our calendar! But, am I living a life of thanksgiving? Am I living a heart of gratitude? Do those around me know just how thankful I am for them? All year…not just this week. That is my prayer: a grateful heart. always.
hot coffee ready when I wake up (thanks, honey!)
kids playing outside in leaves for hours
playing catch with daddy
friends who love me even after conflict
several fun field trips lately!
pumpkin spice candles
new mercies every.single.morning
watching birds in bare trees
good school weeks together
my continued motivation to get things done around here (which means I’ve been feeling good for quite awhile now!! yay!)
