Adventures in Faith: Thankful Thursday

Sometimes I get caught up in life. Does that ever happen to you? Each day is filled with tasks that I need to get done. Right now it is things like laundry, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, making sure Rebekah doesn't eat something she shouldn't... 

And at the end of the day, my head hits my pillow, and my brain is filled with the thoughts of the tasks I didn't get done. Feelings of frustration about having to push things to the next day. Anxiety about not getting enough done...and I forget to be thankful. 

I forget to be thankful that God has provided us with more than enough clothes to wear and a washing machine to clean them in. 

Lord, help me to be thankful for laundry. 

I forget to be thankful that God has provided us with more than enough food to fill our tummies...and even extra for Rebekah to throw on the floor...but I'm trying to teacher her not to do that!

Lord, help me be thankful for cooking. 

I forget to be thankful for the house God has provided for us to live in. Thankful that I have a bathroom to clean, and that Rebekah has toys that I can pick up. 

Lord, help me be thankful for cleaning. 

However, most nights, before I drift off to sleep, I do remember to thank God for my wonderful husband and our sweet Rebekah. I am so thankful that He has allowed me to have a hard working husband who supports me staying home to raise our daughter. 

I am SO thankful that He has entrusted the sweetest little girl there ever was to her daddy and I. 

I am thankful for the smiles and giggles we all share every day. 

Lord, thank you for my family. 
I am so thankful! 


  1. It's all about perspective, isn't it....
    I try to remember to be thankful for things that I moan & groan about sometimes - it could be a luxury to someone else.

  2. We are all guilty I am sure. We are BLESSED!!
