Yesterday was a much better day after the train wreck of a day I had the other day. While I would love for my days to be filled with all the things in the beginning I can usually only get a few of them accomplished in any given day. So yesterday we did take yummy homemade treats to the kids teachers and we did take a homemade dinner to a friend who just had a baby. The kids had guitar lessons and soccer practice then Josh and I had date. It was crazy but lots of fun! During all the fun it was so easy to think of all the ways I am thankful. So I am following along with some of my fellow bloggers and going to blog about all the good in the midst of the economy and the presidentially election that is not looking so good.
At the kids school, Pastor Livingston has the kids do participatory prayers. He starts a prayer with: "God I praise you for _______." The kids can then individually pipe in and say something that they praise God for. It is really awesome to hear the kids chimming in one at a time with all the great things about God. So I want to use this pattern to praise God for all the GOOD in my life.
God I praise you for a wonderful husband who even watches "What Not to Wear" with me and likes it.
God I praise you for a house full of kids.
God I praise you for a wonderful school for my kids to attend.
God I praise you for sweet friends and family.
God I praise you for a good job, roof over my head and plenty of food to eat.
God I praise you for you grace and mercy.
God I praise you for your unending love.
God I praise you for who you are!
In Jesus name, Amen.
