It's so simple that you might just miss the fun. That's what I love about having a toddler. They really make you stop and consider even the smallest of blessings, which when you really ponder them are not small at all. I have so much to be thankful for.
I know that sounds crazy. But when I sit and consider all that God has blessed me with I can barely catch my breath because I am in awe. It scares me that I am not thankful enough, it scares that I do not show Him how grateful I am. It scares me that there is is that much selfishness in me that I am not continually singing His praises !
|Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!|
|Serve the LORD with gladness;|
Come before His presence with singing.
|Know that the LORD, He is God;|
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
|Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,|
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
|For the LORD is good;|
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
The next two pictures are the extra bonus our family gets for homeschooling. Here is Isaiah 11 reading to Hannah 2. The relationships my kids have with each other just blows me away. Not to say it's always peace and butterflies, sometimes honestly it's WW 111. But in these moments it just makes me well up with emotions of pure JOY!
Here's Isaiah helping Elijah with his math. I was pulled away trying to get Hannah down for her afternoon nap. Isaiah stepped in to help Elijah. I loved it! THESE are the moments that the Lord uses to whisper to my heart "keep going, stay focused on ME, I am doing a good work" AMEN!
