Find us thankful

God is so good all the time… I just can’t capture all that goodness that He hides in just a single day… but I can capture small pieces and those serve to remind me… 

Lord Thank You for these gifts….
Summer bucket list started.... already crossed a few things off
a package of washi tape in the mail
Smash book making with my girls
This bible study starting
Loads of fun family activities filling squares on the family calendar
menu plans plotted out for the next five weeks
making a delicious supper from odds and ends in the fridge and pantry
the simply delicious taste of iced tea and lemonade together
praying  together through the rough spots
rejoice together when we've passed that rough spot
Our special annual homeschool group end of year camp-out
The family end-of-year ceremony around the campfire at the camp-out.... Mr. Steady promoting each of our children to the next grade level and praising them individually and specifically
The looks on my children's faces when their Daddy spoke those words of praise and affirmation in front of the group
Ending the ceremony with each family standing together and each Daddy praying.... then...
Each family lighting a sky lantern and sending it off into the night
Watching those lanterns flicker in the distant sky and thanking God for this good, good year
Ms. Books new interest in genealogy
Planting our garden together
Nana's new lambs
Farm dreams becoming goals.... its a real reality
Listening to the kiddos share their favorite homeschooling memories... for Ms. Books and Mr. Conductor- they both listed doing science experiments together
Creating art
Praying for our new neighbors instead of complaining about them
Knowing who to rely on and that He is faithful
Stepping deeper into trusting God with my everythings and anythings
Invitation to coffee from a friend
Catching a glimpse of Sassafras's prayer journal.... didn't realize how deep she prayed or that answers to prayer in this home weren't only mine
Family chores with worship music

Oh Lord.... Find us Thankful here in this home
