Day 2

What a great way to look at your day.  Instead of finding things to gripe and complain about, I found myself looking for what I have to be thankful for the whole day.  I like this way of thinking.

  1. Beau applauding me when I walked in to get her out of her crib this morning
  2. Josh is back from his retreat!
  3. For all of the people who read and were inspired by my first post.
  4. That my mom saved some flashcards from 1977 used in a Sunday school class and gave them to me.  I love using them in my Bible time with Beau.
  5. For my new grocery store list app.  So nice not having to mess with a pen and piece of paper.
  6. That my dad got Facebook.  His princess comment to me was so sweet today and made me smile.
  7. Gus and Beau both go to sleep every night by 8 pm without a fuss
  8. For podcasts.  I love being able to hear messages from some of my favorite Pastors around the country.
  9. For the song “Hold Me Now” by Hillsong.  I had never heard it and my dear friend JJ told me about it today.  Loved listening to it and thinking of Felix in heaven.
  10. That Beau has learned the word “cool.”  She says it so cute and knows how to use it.
  11. For my neice (in law) Courtney.  I never would have guessed when I met her several years ago that she would be one of my favorite people.
  12. That two years ago today my little brother married his high school sweetheart.  SO glad God brought her back into his life.
  13. For the supernatural way God is healing our hearts- supernatural = beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.
  14. That Beau is still little enough that she will rest her head on my shoulder and let me sing to her a few minutes before bed time.
  15. For the delicious fajitas Josh made for dinner to go along with my home made salsa.. We make a good team.
  16. That I have an Aldi so close now.  Cheap fruit!  Yay!
  17. For the message “Relentless” I heard today by John Bevere.  Such a good word.
  18. Pixar Short “Jack Jack Attack” anything that can get Gus to laugh like that makes me happy.
  19. For the moment this afternoon when Josh had fallen asleep on my lap while I watched Gus play Joshua and the battle of Jericho and made Beau his “baby Israelite”
  20. That The Fresh Beat Band and Yo Gabba Gabba go together for a show!  The smile on Beau’s face seeing her two favorite shows unite was awesome.
  21. For our refrigerator.  It’s old, it’s small, it’s not the prettiest thing but I am thankful that it is always full of food and it keeps it all cold.
  22. That every moment of my life was laid out before a single day passed (Ps 139:16)
  23. That Beau spins when we put a dress on her
  24. That if we continue in faith, God continues in favor – Pastor Stephen LeBlanc
  25. That Gus’ spirit was upset when I caught him in a lie today.  He was quick to repent.
  26. The Lord is good in the day of trouble.  (Nahum 1:7) Remember it’s only a day, not a week, not a month and God will not permit the devil to add an extra hour to that day.
  27. He KNOWS those who trust him (Nahum 1:7) He not only knows our face and name, but our tears, wishes, what we desire, and the secrets of our hearts.

    My husband and I went to Mix56 camp with Josh last summer. We loved getting to hear him tell about his family. I saw him post your blog to his FB. I absolutely love hearing your heart. The Father is looking down and smiling on you. Thank you for being brave, bold, and listening to His voice. You have inspired me! I can’t wait for what He has in story for you through this journey.

    This is awesome Sarah. Thanks for the insight into your life and love of the Lord. God has been showing me some really great things about patience and having the heart of a teacher with the little ones and allowing myself to be more like Jesus to them 🙂
