Thankful Thursday: So many blessings



I am home with a sick baby today (the rash that was supposed to go away quickly has spread and M is very tired, cranky and has little appetite) and have had time to reflect which I don't normally do much of.

Today I am thankful for:



Being able to stay home with my little one when sick and not having to worry about daycare or the like.

Potatoes in the crockpot cooking away for dinner...hardly any last minute prep needed for the loaded baked potatoes we'll be eating.

Daniel's job that God provided in His perfect timing. Its not always a fun work environment for Daniel, but I have seen so much growth in him as a result of the hard times.

Being so close to finishing all paperwork for our application to Wycliffe. If girlie does nap later, I hope to turn in the last piece of the Bible knowlege assesment today.

A well stocked fridge and pantry and coming under budget this month will most definitely happen!

A healthy second pregnancy so far. We see a midwife next Tuesday and again and will be scheduling our ultrasound which will hopefully tell us baby's gender...yay!


For a great place to live where our landlord and maintenance guy are typically super helpful when something is wrong.

For a church family that is often so much of a family to us. This week we've been blessed by our involvement in the church so many times.

"We give thanks to you oh God, we give thanks!" Psalm 75:1a

Praying for your precious one to feel better very soon, and praying for you, and the dear one you are carrying. Be blessed.

Rachel,

Wow! That picture is incredible!

What part of the country do you live in?

Nice to meet you. Praying for the miracle of life growing inside of you and trusting God's hand to continue to touch your baby until he/she is here with you!

Enjoy the holidays!

Blessings to you this day!
Jill
