I had a comment recently asking me how I stayed sane in the trouble that is going around me…
Well, I don’t know that I always do.
I lose it sometimes.
I get all bent out of shape and panicky from time to time.
I get frustrated.
I don’t always remain calm, cool and collected.
Ask my family. haha 🙂
That is one thing that I want to make sure I display here…. Our lives are FAR from perfect. We are far from perfect.
We don’t have the idealistic rolling hills with white picket fences farm. We don’t have the incredibly beautiful farmhouse with wrap-around porch. Hardly.
What we do have is each other.
We have faith.
Faith in a GOD who is greater than ALL our problems.
So that got me to thinking about today’s post.
I want to write out several things that I am very thankful for today.
but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
:I am thankful for:
… this early morning my family spent together, doing farm chores, enjoying the cool morning that promises that fall is not too far away.
… the warm breakfast of oatmeal. A little coconut oil and sorgham for sweetness. Healthy and hearty.
… the pantry of canned goods we have put by for winter.
… my wonderful children, my Godly husband and the home that we share.
… early morning devotions on the porch, with a cup of coffee and quiet moments on the farm.
… the smell of bread baking.
… clean, fresh water.
… seeing my children exhibit the ‘fruit of the spirit’.
… teaching my children at home.
… watching my husband show grace and love even during times of trial.
… our church family.
… our family, I don’t know what we would do without them.
let us be thankful,
and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe
Times may be hard, but there is so many wonderful, beautiful moments to cherish that surround me every day. I could list a thousand more.
I am thankful.
May God bless you and you look for things that make you thankful today and every day.
