I have come to the conclusion that if we all just slowed down long enough to see all of the graces that are given to us by our heavenly father, we may just realize that we have no reason to grumble. In an effort to ground myself in Him and prepare for the homeschooling journey in the fall, I am joining 1000 gifts on an awesome blog called A Holy Experience. If you have never visited Ann's blog go directly there now. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 JUST GO!!! This world is so deceptive and wicked, and her blog is such a reminder of where we are supposed to be. I am hoping that writing down each and every thing I am thankful for on Mondays will keep my focus not on the things of this world, but on Him alone. So here is the beginning of my 1,000 gifts....I know its not Monday, but Im an instant gratification kinda girl and I just really can't wait.
To be rooted is perhaps
the most important and
least recognized need
of the human soul.
~ Simone Weil
I am thankful that I am saved by God's amazing grace and by nothing that I have done...
for being rooted
for my husband who works so hard for his family and sits in the same spot every night
that God chose me to be Mom to the most perfect little girls ever
for vegetable gardens, even when its too hot to enjoy them
for air conditioning
for a precious friend and the birds eye view of the amazing work God is doing in her life
for a one of a kind country church that is exactly where I am supposed to be
for a few little girls and a too small classroom each and every Wednesday night.
