it can begin as early as breakfast, when they aren't happy with what's being offered, and can carry right on through bedtime prayers because one more minute is never enough. the little ones are not alone in this battle of the wills. this battle to acknowledge the gifts among the disappointments. my complaints look more like a sigh and dropped shoulders when i realize a mess i cleaned up four times already has again reared its ugliness. or a furrowed brow because there is never enough sleep for a mama of little ones.
selfishness covers the eyes like scales that blind us to the goodness that is to be found in every day. so we are learning together the beauty of thankfulness.
"when i give thanks for the seemingly microscopic,
i make a place for god to grow within me"
it begins with writing. writing down the big and small things that bless our days. my friend andrea makes list takers that are perfect for capturing blessings. in addition to the writing, we each picked a verse from the thankfulness edition scripture memory cards to focus on this month.
these are the small steps we are taking to draw us nearer to living out the radical love of jesus. because how can we love others and love well until we have a grateful heart? in an effort to bless and encourage you in your thankfulness journey, andrea and i will be giving away one list taker and one set of the thankfulness edition scripture memory cards
