Do you ever feel like you're on top of the world!?
And for that I am thankful.
So many days are spent in the valley, in the darkness of our struggles. So many days, I forget to look up, look out, and get out of the way so my God can do His handiwork.
Just the like the handiwork of His creation. When I stand atop the lava rock of 7R Mountain n Gordon, Texas, I pause as I feel the warmth of the sun and the gentle touch of the valley breeze. This is one of those places, some people call them vortexes, I call them God's touch. I am so thankful for His very real presence in our lives. I love how He shows up!
I am thankful for my friendship with so many bloggers. Today, we are celebrating Grandma Dawn's 300th post. Who could have known that two middle-aged women, living cross country from one another, would be blessed with a friendship...for such a time as this! When you have time, go over to Dawn's blog to say Happy 300th!
I am thankful for the special time we had on our son's Spring Break.
I am thankful that I am on Week 9 (of 15) of my last class needed for my Certificate in Christian Counseling. This online course has been the most challenging and demanding course in my three year course work. And yet, I am thankful for the many options we have in today's technological world! Online courses are the best! You don't even have to leave your house to "go to school!"
I am thankful for the sunshine outside. I am so-o-o-o over winter....and ready for Spring. When we were in Texas, the song birds woke me up every morning with their beautiful calls. I had forgotten their wake up calls--for so
many of our birds fly south for the winter. I can hardly await their return. The birdfeeders are full in anticipation.
I am thankful for the beauty found in all of God's creation. While there's no place like home, if you pause for just a moment, you will feel His presence where ever you are!
It is then you find peace. Serenity. Gratefulness. His provision.
I am thankful that God is just like that!
