Thankfulness







"How great is your goodness, which you have
stored up for those who fear you, which you
bestow in the sight of men on those who take
refuge in you. " Psalm 31:9


So lately I have been dishing out on all of my dramas. Via PH and her constant encouragement, I am going to change it all around and be THANKFUL!







Even though I might have locked my self out of the house, I am thankful that we have the money to pay to let me back in.

I am also thankful that my boss at the dance studio was so forgiving about me not showing up to my job. She didn't even think twice about it. In fact, everyone there complete understood and we all laughed it off.

HELLO! Did I mention I found my debit card? I prayed about it and not 5 min later I found it in the wallet I already checked at least 10 times.

I am thankful that my lawn mower is fixable and I do not have to but a new one. I have a great neighbor who said he would come over and fix it today! I had not even mention it to him, he just said he would come over and do it. We have great neighbors. They take care of John and me all the time. Our dogs play together, they let us borrow tools (i.e. mowers), we play cards together- They are just great people. Since we have had Diesel, our relationship with them has grown. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a Christian to them.

I am thankful that while John has been gone, I have been able to sleep at night... and with only one light on in Living room. :-)

God is sovereign and in control of even the littlest things that go on in my life. There is always reason to be thankful.

Oh Diana! I'm so sorry you've had such a rough time!

This little tidbit might cheer you up a bit. On our roadtrip this past week, we listened to the audiobook of Anne of Green Gables in the car and every time they said the name Diana (Anne's best friend in the book) the girls squealed and said "Diana! Like Aunt Diana!"

I'm pretty sure the Smaller Person still thinks they were talking about you.

Can't wait to see you.

It's fun to see God's hand in every single annoying trial you've been through! I can't imagine how aweful life would be without Him!! A good reminder to look for Him even in the most frustrating circumstances! Thanks D. :)
