pray without ceasing;
in everything give thanks,
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thess 5:16-18
Not always easy to do...
Especially when daddy's away on business.
And the housework threatens to overwhelm.
And sickness overtakes our bodies.
And the sun just doesn't seem to shine.
Yet the beauty through it all...
God-- in all His goodness-- provides.
And day by day, hour by hour, the blessings flow.
So this morning, after one doozy of a week, I offer thanks...
two wonderful grandmoms... who selflessly help, who selflessly give, who selflessly love
