Showers of blessings.

Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the many blessings God has richly lavished on me.

The life I get to wake up to every day.

The many gifts chronic pain brought me.

The surgeries, so many, so painful, but so free in lessons.

Feeling completely helpless, but completely taken care of.

The times I feel unsure, but know God is in control.

The girl I was that hides deep within me trying to come out, reminding me I wasn’t always so guarded.

The memories of my youth.

The fears I have conquered.

The friendships I almost didn’t make because of fear.

The belly laughs that erupt as a result of 2 little boys playing together.

The joy of hearing one son tell the other he loves him.

The desire of my youngest son to share Jesus with the world.

A husband who is faithful and committed to our marriage.

The ladies Bible study that challenges me to be a woman of God.

The Bible study Aaron and I are a part of that is now part of our family.

Learning more of the character of God daily.

Connecting with other mom’s.

Finding peace in midst of trial.

Following God’s prompting, ending a toxic relationship and seeing the fruit of this obedience.

Having a godly sister who holds on to purity, integrity and searches the scriptures deeply.

The ability to feel part of my left foot again.

Being able to cook and bake again.

Being able to stand up straight.

Being able to walk without Wilma (the walker).

Spending time with my grandmother the day she died.

The life of our first child who I never got to hold.

The optimism that I will reach my weightloss goals.

The prospect of working out again.

The ability to call on my parents and knowing they would do anything to help me with the kids.

My dearest friends, you know who you are!

Learning that I am never to old to try new things.

Thinking of what I will be able to do without back pain.

A roof over my head.

Food.

Being married to my best friend.

My garden.

Raising the boys in a house of love rooted in the foundation of Christ.

Knowing I am a child of God.

I am His and He is mine.

The humility that comes from knowing I have done nothing to deserve these blessings.

Praise God From Whom ALL Blessings Flow!
