Thankful Thursday

Father,

Thank you SO much for today. Thank you for the refreshing rain pooling outside my window. Thank you for the nourishment it provides the earth. Thank you for the gorgeous flowers and plants that will grow because of it. Thank you for your promise to Noah that this will not last forever. Your rainbow is evidence of that.

Today, Lord, I want to thank you so very much for my family. I cannot thank you enough for them. I am amazed at how you created us all so differently, but so in-tune with one another. During times of frustration and concern, YOU draw us back together. I'm thankful that we can vent to, cry, scream, laugh, tease, challenge, hug, share, and love one another. I'm thankful that you put them in my life to help carry my burdens, and dance in my joy. I'm so thankful that our family will be whole again (SOON!) and that we will continue to grow in You. I'm thankful for marriages, births, adoptions, friendships and other avenues that help us add to our family. We are by no means perfect, but oh, perfectly meshed.

I'm looking forward to see where You will lead us, as a family, in the upcoming days, months, and years. I pray that we will enjoy life as a family here, and then be reunited in Heaven. Thank you for that opportunity.

I'm so blessed to call my family, mine.

Thank you, Jesus.

Amen
