Giving thinks can be tough when your world is spinning like a hurricane. The wind is blowing up dirt in your face. The rain looks like a wall of wet. All you know is that when the eye of the storm comes, there will be a few hours of relief before you get more storm. In the back of your mind, you know this hurricane will only last for a time. The damage its doing will take some time to repair. While I walk through this time with tears running down my face and my hands raised in surrender, I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in you, O Lord...
I am thankful for:
God and his word's to live by.
The smile and laughter from my little guy.
My friend at work who is helping me see God in a new way.
A warm and dry place to live.
Clothes to wear.
Shoes on my feet
Food in my fridge and cabinets.
The future no matter what it looks like.
Eyes that see. Ears that hear. A nose to smell. A mouth to taste, sing, and shout. Hands to touch.
