Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever. Psalm 100:4-5 MSG
God has been recently working on me to be more thankful.
He has been gently reminding me to be thankful for the little things on life, especially when things are going good.
We tend to get caught up in the good times and not worry about singing praise, but we are supposed to praise him all the time.
We hear “praise Him in the storms” all too much, but wouldn’t it honestly make more sense to praise Him when you are happy and feeling fulfilled?
The other day on my way to Hattiesburg, I had a lot on my mind. Ha! I always have a lot on my mind. I told Wes, that more often than not, when I’m driving I don’t even turn the radio on or hook up my iPod, I just listen to the thoughts in my head.
For whatever reason, God chose that day to remind me of all the things in my life that weren’t going wrong.
And I’m blessed, y’all.
I’m healthy, my husband is healthy, we have two healthy kids. Our family is healthy, an so much more than the word loving will ever describe.
I have two beautiful children who are both so much more of a blessing that I had ever realized before becoming a parent. And they are both so sweet natured and laid back. And growing just fine! And did I mention beautiful?
I have a home that I live in, it keeps me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I have so much furniture I don’t have room for anything else.
We have friends who are willing to help at the drop of a hat, for whatever need there is.
We are so blessed. Praise God this morning for your blessings. I know you have some. Take a moment and think about the things He has blessed you with, then let him know you how grateful you are.
So to carry on with the theme of grateful- last night around 9:30….
LUCY PEED IN HER POTTY!!
Oh goodness I was so happy I screamed. Then she laughed, an sat down, a peed a little more!
So.. I screamed again! And she laughed again, and we continued this until she was fresh out of pee!
Needless to say… I am one happy mama. Now, I know this is just the start to a diaperless life, but at least I’m starting! We’ve been training for the past few weeks, a day here, a day there, and she had been holding it until naptime or bedtime. Waiting on a diaper.
I know she’ll make mistakes, but at least she knows what I want from her when I put her on the potty!
Pray for us as we start today in panties again! I’m still excited. She could pee on the floor all day and I’d be okay with it (for a while at least).
Ahh, parenthood. Makes you happy about other people’s bowel processes.
