What are You Grateful For?
But then I sensed God gently remind me, "Lydia, be thankful that you have a little boy's nose to wipe." Another sigh. I knew God was right. My life would be so empty without my bright eyed, talkative little son! And after the loss we experience last fall, I often wonder what I would ever do without him.
Ungratefulness. It seems like it creeps up on me so often! I am constantly fighting that nasty enemy that robs my spirit of joy. But I want to fight back. I want to keep working at developing a genuine spirit of thankfulness. And so I am grateful this morning for my son, even if he does have a runny nose that needs wiped every 5 minutes. And I'm thankful that I have a God who cares enough about me to remind me of my blessings.
So what about you. What are you grateful for today? I'd love if you shared it with me!
