Day 23

Today I am thankful for:
  • My messy neglected home. I am ashamed of all the times I have complained about it.
  • My children, all four of them. Because the break me out of my solemn, grumpy shell and make me laugh-out-loud every day. And sing. And dance. And play games. And tell stories. And hug. Even when I don't feel like it. And it's a balm for my soul.
  • Baby Nathaniel, who was Christened today. And for his family, whom I love.
  • Footy pajamas.
  • "You've Got Mail" Allison and I watched it tonight and I forgot how much I love that movie.
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • These moments of near complete silence, and solitude, and peace.
  • This verse: For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Phillipians 1:6. Because lately I feel very unfinished.

What a wonderful verse. Thank you for bringing that to my attention today- I needed to hear that. I have so many grand intentions for how I hope to spend this Advent season and it is good for me to remember ahead of time that it will all be well- even if it doesn't turn out as I had hoped.

Mmmm... I love pumpkin pie. I made a pumpkin pie and a pecan pie today. Yummy!

Is there anything cuter than a baby in footie jammies? (No.)
And that verse was just the thing I needed to hear this morning. Thank you.

We're all unfinished. It is nice to be reminded of that. We spend so much time wishing to be finished that we can't enjoy the process of growing into it.

Footsie jams. My heart.

Those are all great things to be thankful for. I love the footy pajamas. My kids would live in them if I let them.

Unfinished here too, and so very grateful for the faithfulness of my God who will never leave me nor forsake me and will do the necessary work of conforming me to the image of His Son Jesus...for His glory!

And can I say I'm thankful for your thankfulness? ;-)
