God is so good! I’m sitting here counting my many, many blessings. Six years ago today the Lord blessed me with another child. Andrew is so very precious. He woke up this morning at 6 a.m. more excited than at Christmas time. His room was filled with balloons and the kitchen table was filled with a homemade card from his brother and sister, presents and a tray of mini-cupcakes I made late last night after everyone went to bed. We just finished a breakfast of chocolate gravy and biscuits and the kids and I sat down to watch The Pirates That Don’t Do Anything movie (Andrew’s present from his Dad and I). This afternoon we’ll go pick up Dana for lunch and have a picnic at the park.
Lord, Thank you so much for the many blessings you give each and every day. Thank you for my son, Andrew, and for the six years you’ve given us. I pray that his life will bring you honor and glory. Thank you for my other children. They are jewels. You are so good to us.
Thank you Father for my husband who loves You dearly. I am so blessed to have a husband we can follow as he follows You. I’m so blessed to have a husband who leads us spiritually; who prays with me and the children daily; who teaches us from Your Holy Word. Thank you Lord for a husband who understands and embraces Your plan for family; one that supports and encourages my role as mother and teacher. Thank you for the ability to stay at home and teach my children; for being able to work hard the first of the week and enjoying the blessings of today.
Today dear Lord, I will give you praise in all things. As I look around my home even now I will praise You for the peace that You have shed abroad in our hearts and the love that flows through our home. I will praise you for the smiles and laughter of my children. I will praise you for blessings them with good health and tender hearts. I praise You for giving us life. It is sweet, Lord. Thank You for the sun, the moon, the stars that speak of Your Majesty. Thank You for the trees, plants and flowers in the fields that declare Your Glory. Thank You for the birds that sing; the butterflies that flutter by; and all the insects that chirp; even they announce to the world that You are my Creator. Father God, You are so great and I am so small. I know that without You I am nothing, but I praise You and thank You because with You dear God, I am everything I should be!
Lord, my prayer this morning is not for more blessings, for I don’t deserve all that you give, but my prayer is that my life, my husband’s life and my children’s life will not continually seeks more and more blessings from above but that we will seek and desire to be a blessing to You.
