Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for many, many of HaShem's blessing this week. I am constantly amazed how I can feel so blessed when nothing the world considers a blessing has occurred, even when disaster comes (worldly and personal disaster), even when I feel like the world is crumbling down, when I've failed. The peace that comes with abiding in the Lord is unmatched, and even to have experienced once is enough blessing for a lifetime. And He wants us to abide in him for eternity? That is almost unfathomable.

I am thankful for the friends I have, the ones who share my beliefs and the ones who question it out of love. Edifying conversations, heartfelt words, and a little healthy debate will always be met with appreciation. I am so tired of arguing for argument's sake, with comments doused with pride, which result only in anger. For my friends who care enough to ask, to question and then to listen, I thank you.

I am thankful for my husband, who is different than me in every conceivable way, who challenges me on a daily basis to be a better mom, wife and woman. I am thankful for my boys, who inspire me to be that mom, who taught me about love, and who are absolutely a blessing from my Father :)

I am thankful for my renewed crafting passion. I love yarn. I love fibers. I want to own sheep. I haven't felt this rejuvenated in a long time, PTL!

It has been a crazy week, perhaps more in my mind than in my house, but realizing (again) you've mixed up your priorities and feeling convicted to change things is never a fun process. But, YehHowWey is good, and He is full of grace. For that I am truly thankful!
