A Thankful Heart | Day 3.

Today has been kind of a rough day. No reason really. Truthfully, everything has been fantastic and flowed the way it should. There just seems to be a deepening sense of being overwhelmed. The closer I get to next semester, which is 6 credit hours more than I’m currently taking, the more stressed I become. Needless to say, it’s been difficult to find what I’m thankful for today but it finally hit me.

I’m thankful for provision.

Everything the boys and I need has been and will be provided for us because we are children of God and that is one of His promises to us. Provision has already been proven in our lives. We have a roof over our heads, warm beds to sleep in, food to eat, and the privilege/ability of going to school. We have running water, central heat/air, vehicles, etc.

We have so much it’s ridiculous at times, most of the time actually. So many things we take for granted are things that others in the world can only dream of.

Most of you know by now that we’ve decided to do Christmas a little different than normal this year. No flashy toys or electronics. There are enough of those. If anything there will be a plethora of books and board games but that’s it. This year we will be adopting two (or more) children from the Angel Tree at their school. This tree is comprised of students whose families cannot provide for them.

I want the boys to know that there are only a few things God requires of us; that we give Him ALL of us, that we show love to those around us, and that go into all the world to share Him with everyone. That world begins at home and in our community.

God has provided for us so that in turn

we can be a blessing to others.
