Is it really Thursday again.... already?? I shouldn't be surprised, this week I am enjoying 'spring break.' [though it's not exactly springy outdoors] We have been out and about almost everyday. This morning our venture was to the library for story-time. Afterward, our play-group came over for lunch!
'Keeping it real'. I have had a lot on my heart and mind lately. A couple weeks ago we [husband & I] experienced a hard, disappointing 'event' and have been slowly working through it. [especially me] I know God has a plan, and that his ways, and timing is best. But, I battle with laying down my personal desires and truly wanting the Lord's will, whatever it may be. Like any situation, good can come from it and I am thankful the Lord is at work. He is teaching me to trust and obey, not to worry, but rest in his peace... Psalm 37:4 : Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
So though I may be struggling today and having a bit of a "pity-party," I still want to Praise and thank the good Lord for "this storm" and my many blessings.
Today, I am especially thankful for....
This week being spring break, I have been able to enjoy a slower pace of life. I have had an abundance of time to rest and relax... to rejuvenate.

-Grace. I'm so thankful for God's grace. I fall and fail over and over again, yet he still loves me and calls me His child.
- Safety & Shelter. I keep thinking of the people of Japan. I was traumatized watching footage of the tsunami waters washing people, homes, land, and lives away. Here I sit writing on a dumb blog when there are thousands and thousands of people with no food, no shelter, no family, and no hope.
What are you thankful for today??
God bless each of you in whatever you are facing,
