Memorial Day Thankfulness

By Monday, May 27, 2013 0 0

It seems the most honoring thing to do to express appreciation for those whose sacrifice makes freedom ring in my life is to express thanks. So, I honor all our fallen heroes this Memorial Day with a long list of things I am thankful for.

♦ A warm and mostly sunny spring. Although this weekend was dreary, we have enjoyed many sunny days lately
♦ Sweet Susanna taking long naps nearly every day
♦ Three days with Chris at home
♦ A lovely family cookout with burgers, ribs, corn salad, chips and guacamole, watermelon, indoor s’mores and chocolate cake
♦ Freedom. Freedom from oppression, freedom to complain. We have been waiting far too long for a hefty tax return with no explanation from the IRS, which is daily losing credibility following a scandal. It is so frustrating, and we feel so helpless to get justice because what can we do? Yet I am thankful for the freedom to complain, and I trust God to resolve this issue
♦ A healthy, growing baby boy on the way
♦ Answered prayers
♦ People who express thanks for this blog’s existence, in spite of the fact that I have neglected it so long
♦ Exodus 4:12 “Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
♦ That even as we sit in one of life’s waiting rooms, sometimes soaking our feet in disappointment, God is faithful and God doesn’t disappoint
♦ This beautiful photo

♦ The opportunity to be part of the story God is writing for a couple of young people we’ve been discipling
♦ Summer is coming
♦ Answered prayers (more on that later)
