"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live in him,
rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness."
With a grateful heart, I give thanks for:
human jungle gyms, hearty laughter, and a favorite trike they'll simply never outgrow
a morning at the park, fun-loving cousins, a game of catch-me-if-you-can... pure joy!
bike helmets, even if they are a few sizes too big
acorn hunts in the backyard and a bag full of goodies for grandma's deer
the impossible math problem... solved! All by himself.
a favorite snack... made by helper hands
"This book is actually pretty good."
four energetic children, playing contendedly, yes happily... together... in the backyard
painting outdoors (and the discipline he showed by NOT painting the steps... even though he really wanted to)
a weekend away, birthday celebrations, time to rest and unwind... home
laughter, acceptance, encouragement, love
and these tiny feet, straight from his mama's womb
yes, this newborn boy... and the joy he'll forever bring
"Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him."
and my list goes on...
