3 gifts close
This seems easy enough, I have three people very close to me day in and day out. My husband and my two beautiful girls. But do I always have Gratitude for them? No, but I pray that today as I focus on being thankful for them, I will love them more even in the yucky, sin filled moments.
I am thankful for my husband who sacrifices so much for this family. The way he loves me (even in my yucky sin filled moments) is a blessing and a grace.
My first beautiful child, who is in the confusing midst of becoming a woman, is still a blessing and a gift of God. All her willfulness and stubbornness, all her willingness and persistence, a beautiful blessing to me, a reward. I am thankful.
The youngest beauty, the sweet child, who feels she has earned what her heart desires. She is my reminder that I cannot earn God's goodness, and I am not entitled to my heart's desires just because I think I an being good.
The way God uses those closest to me, to sanctify me. I am thankful!
