Thankfulness

This is the 3rd post this morning. I think God is teaching me Thankfulness.

Today is a gift from him. I had to wait an hour. So what. Big deal. There is so much to be thankful for. I did not respond very well to not getting instant gratification and I don't like that. There is still a lot of character in me God still needs to refine.

A big thing on my mind lately is slowing down our pace of life and enjoying relationships. Some of God's most precious children are laid aside in sick beds or locked in prisons. And I complain when I have to wait for an hour to have my healthy child checked out. I am ashamed of my bad attitude and thankful that God will take me back and forgive me.

He showed me that I can rejoice in my insufficiency, knowing that His Power is made perfect in weakness. Now I'm going to go and enjoy the rest of my day and be thankful for the gift.

Oh Anna! I think it's totally ok to get all undone and upset... but I think it's even better when you can turn it around, and turn it over to God.
I'm so glad I have you as a friend and an example of a godly mommy!

whew! humbling post.
I have been doing some research on compassion international and I am overwhelmed at the need of so many kids and the lack of need when I see my kids. humbling.
