Thankful Thursday ~ Nov 15th

free-victorian-clipart-1.jpg

The Lord has blessed me beyond measures this week…. I am trying to look at the things or situations that He puts in my daily living for God’s glory ~ the things that I just don’t wanna do, hear, or just deal with as a blessing from our King. I must glorify Him always!! Because if I didn’t encounter this week….

 

Tons and Tons of dirty laundry ~ I wouldn’t have my 5 sweet blessings. This really hit home with me this week. I have 2 friends that are as old as me and are single and would give their right arm to be a Mommy and a help meet. How blessed I am to NEVER be lonely. Sometimes I do long for a hot bubble bath where I can just relax and meditate. But, knowing that my almost 3 year old just loves to take a bath with me is far more rewarding. It’s our special time where we sing hymns, pray, and of course play boats.

 

Cleaning out my kitchen cabinets ~ I am thankful that we have food on the table and we have never missed a meal. I have so many dishes, pots, etc… because I have a large family and have to cook in bulk. Amen!

 

Cleaning my bathrooms on a daily basis ~ well, this is a tough one for me, but Amen sister that I have a cleaning solution that eats hides the gas station urinal smell in my bathrooms from my 5 poor shooters .

 

Grading my boys math ~ UGH! But, thank you Lord for giving me the opportunity to teach them your Word everyday.

 

Disciplining my Boys ~ thank you, Lord , that I have the strength and willingness to train my sons in your glory. I want to see them in heaven with me. It may break my heart today, but the outcome of being a mother of Godly men serving the Lord is a reward in itself. Please continue to give me wisdom in training my little men for your battle, Lord.

  1. What a great thankful list! I had never thought about being thankful for laundry but that would be a ditto for me. I love my kids and wouldn’t trade the laundry I do because of them for nothing!
    Thanks for sharing this week!
    Blessings

  2. This was so funny. I loved reading your TT list. It is such a blessing to stay so busy with our children. I am thankful that you have your sons and that you are happy. God Bless!

  3. That was great. May God continue to see the rewards of a thankful heart. Blessings on you and yours as you celebrate Thanksgiving next week!

  4. Awesome thankful list, bless you.

  5. What beautiful list you have here. I agree about cleaning the kitchen. The litter only means we have something to prepare and to consume. 😀
    And also, yes, like you, I may want to long for ‘me time’ sometimes (which is quite impossible with kids around) but nothing beats having the company of your child/children.

  6. I have 2 friends that are as old as me and are single and would give their right arm to be a Mommy and a help meet. …. Amen…
