giving thanks.


Lately, I see it everywhere.

And it's truly wonderful.

Giving Thanks.
It's breathing in crisp morning air after a night of lost sleep and feeling rejuvenated...

Counting change to buy groceries and realizing you have a little more than "just enough"...

Piling yet another load of laundry onto an already immense mountain of clothing...

At least three pairs of muddy shoes on the back porch and still no bare feet...

Dirty dishes in the sink, little hands leaving smudges, little hearts yours to fill...

Waking up too early and falling asleep with wee ones snuggled close under fuzzy blankets...

Uncertain what tomorrow will bring, but knowing there will always be enough...

Because everyday it is the same--God is faithful and unchanging...

His hands held out in invitation...a dance with Him as thanks is given.

**And oh! what fun!  I am featured on Tip Junkie today!

You always know just what to say to touch my heart so perfectly!! I love your writing so much and I love this post especially!!

I can't wait to bring home our little smudger and deal with sleepless nights and muddy boots ... for these things we should truly be grateful!!

Life in true perspective - a truly wonderful post- and more things for me to think about being thankful for.
( the little hand-smudges on the wall got me!)
Thank Joye!
