Thankful Thursday: What Matters Most

090 (800x533)

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1 It's 12:01 AM, Friday now.  I missed it.  Another day with more things on the list than time on my hands. It's the recurring theme these days, actually.  I can't seem to get it all done.  And I don't want to be a whiney-baby about it.  I feel like that's what I've been doing lately.  I've shared lately … [Read more...]

Thankful Thursday: Happy Babies

048 (800x533)

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   Sometimes motherhood is just plain hard.  You've heard me say that before.  You've probably also heard me say that baby smiles and happy kids are like medicine.  Somehow one smile from a sweet baby and I'm all better.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   Wow!  Many months ago, I heard that Savvy Blogging Summit tickets were on sale.  I hurriedly (and excitedly) clicked over to purchase mine, but much to my dismay, saw that the conference I so badly wanted to attend in Atlanta, Georgia was all. sold. out. No. NO! For many months, I fretted … [Read more...]

Thankful Thursday: Grace

thankful-thursday-large

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   People will quite often ask, "how do you do it, with all of them?"  Well, this is one long story that further expounds if I might answer "by the grace of God." A trip to Hobby Lobby, then to Mardel, with the youngest six.  Some would say I'm nuts for attempting that, and I would say I am, too that I … [Read more...]

Thankful Thursday: The Good Stuff

111 (800x533)

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   I have so much to be thankful for ALL the time.  Most of us do have much more to be thankful for than we think if we'll just stop and count our blessings. Even in the midst of chaos and calamity, many of us, if we just step back and look, can see the blessings. For instance... Our van has … [Read more...]

About 20 years ago, we decided to get married.  We're two very different people now than we were then, and … [Read more...]

Thankful Thursday: Smiles

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   I told my husband the other day that ONE SMILE from one of our boys can erase TEN BAD DAYS. I do believe it's true.  I can be having a really cruddy day, and can have completely forgotten to ENJOY my work getting to take care of these sweet babies, and then one precious smile, and I'm reset as joy … [Read more...]

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1   Our oldest son is growing up so fast.  Here is Nolan not even two years ago.  I can hardly keep up with how quickly he is changing. This past Saturday, Nolan's braces went on.  It was a joyful day for me (and him).  It was a celebrated thing.  You see, braces weren't something that I took for … [Read more...]
