After a holiday weekend, warts and all, what can I do but thank Him who withholds no good thing? He is good. He does not always give what I want Him to give, when I want Him to give, or how I want Him to give. But he gives. And gives. And gives.
I am unworthy of any of these blessings:
#13 – sparkling ornaments
#14 – peppermint mocha frappuccino
#15 – cousin pictures!
#16 – family drama . . . I say “thanks” a little grudgingly, but how can I not thank Him when it keeps me humbly running in repentance to my ever-present Comfort and Counselor?
#17 – Firefly’s exuberance at unpacking Christmas boxes
#18 – eight baby steps!!!!!
#19 – preparations for a first birthday
#20 – a larger hard drive – more room for pictures!
#21 – an unexpected rendezvous
#22 – a “baby” chat with my adoption-expectant sister
#23 – passing along baby things
#24 – hearing my once bah-humbug husband downloading Christmas music (Oh, how I want to take some credit for this!!!!)
#25 – sweater dresses
#26 – the beautiful outweighing
And I will not stop….
