30 Days of Thanks: Day 17

Today has been a long day.  I'm up way past my bedtime and that will happen more than once this week.  Swim lessons this morning and late rehearsal tonight.

I'm thankful that friends we've been praying for to find a new house to live in, found one TODAY!!!!  Praise the Lord for answered prayers!

I'm thankful today for a friend that is teaching me how to swim and doesn't give up on me even when my mental self tells me that I cannot do this.  She's on the sideline saying..."You CAN do this!"  She refuses to give up on me. 

I'm thankful that God is like that.  There are situations that I don't handle correctly.  My mental self sends me the wrong messages.  And I mess up.  God is on the sidelines saying..."You can do this!"  Don't look at the past, push forward to the next time and handle it better.  Let Me show you what grace and forgiveness looks like.  

Then I read this today and got choked up:  

"I am not in love with just another man. I am in love with the father of my babies. The one who called me beautiful through nights of ugly, called me strong through days of weak, called me valuable through days of uncertainty. The one who waited patiently for me. Who washed the sheets of vomit as I bathed the fever infested child. 

This is love dear girl. This is passion. It is being one with he who is going to be there for you, till death do you part, regardless. It is something mystical and unexplainable. It is something crazy."
