Thankful Friday

Do any of you know Matt Redman's song 10,000 Reasons/Bless the Lord?  You can hear it here.  I love the lines:  "Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, let me be singing when the evening comes." 

It is Friday.  It hasn't been the easiest week--nothing crazy, just a little hard.  We had friends get bad news, I'm nursing a horrible headcold/sinus infection, my youngest has a minor cold, and my oldest is upstairs crying that his tummy hurts.  No matter what my circumstances, though, I can joyfully praise God for my eternal state and the fact that my trials and pain are temporal and nothing compared to the glory I will someday experience in Heaven.  This Genesis 3 world is fading and I will someday see clearly.

So, I am going to post some photos that give thanks for the BLESSINGS of the week.  There might be some trials, but they are nothing compared to His overflowing grace in my life.

The Diaper Genie is seeing its last days.  My just turned 3 year old is doing well with potty training, and we will be diaper free before we know it.

My oldest turns 6 next week, and he is full of life and joy.  He is waiting for school to start in this picture as we sit in the car lineup at school dropoff. 

My little guy just turned 3 last week, and he is still my little buddy.  He loves his ga-ga (his blue blanky in the picture) and snuggles next to me when he gets up in the morning. 

My 3 year old had his first speech class this week (here we are arriving), and he is making great progress with his articulation.  He is such a happy little guy.

Spring is here.  My azaleas are showing off in the front yard, and the roses are all poised and ready to bloom in a few weeks. 

This sign I made for a friend this week says it all.  God allows every circumstance in the day today, and my response is to trust and be glad in the fruit of what He allows to come my way.

My pretty necklace came from the Apple Blossom Shoppe.  I'm wearing it now, and it is so pretty!

How can you be thanking Him at the end of your work week?


  1. What a sweet post! My son 5 year old son just "graduated" from speech. Watching their language develop is so special.

    1. Aw! Congratulations to your "graduate!" That is a big milestone! I am looking forward to the day when I can better communicate with my little guy.
