yesterday i had a howly day. i cried to the Lord for help, for comfort, for guidance.
and He said ... rejoice always.
so i sat down with my journal and started making a list of things i'm grateful for. two pages later, i realized that He has blessed me abundantly, and i can rejoice today, even though everything on my howl-list is still there.
a few of the things i'm grateful for ...
1) God's word and His voice - how assuring to hear Him speak.
2) patrick and his midnight sam-wrangling.
3) sam, our miracle-baby.
4) a peaceful country to live in.
6) fresh water.
7) springtime. (i saw pussywillows on friday!)
8) parents who pray for us.
9) friends who love us.
10) naps. *happy sigh*
i know i've made lists like this before, and they probably have the same things on them ... but i keep needing reminders to count my blessings. sorry for the repeat :)
