30 Days of Thanks 2013- Day 9

Giving thanks in spite of crazy circumstances can be a challenge, but that's when it's most important for us to do so.

  • I'm thankful the toilet didn't overflow when Michael was messing with it.
  • I'm thankful Tera didn't burn herself while pulling out a pan with hot water in it.  Honey flavored water went all over and into the bottom drawer of the stove.  It needed to be cleaned out anyway.  
  • I'm thankful that we were only swarmed by fake lady bugs instead of yellow jackets on our field trip today.
  • I'm thankful for leftover beans that I could make into homemade bean burgers.
  • I'm thankful for safe travels as we go to lessons each week.
  • I'm thankful that JP kept Michael today so Tera and Daniel could have a middle-school type field trip.  
  • I'm thankful for the smell of fresh baked bread.
  • I'm thankful that God's mercies are new every morning and for second (third, fourth, etc.) chances.

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23
