Thanking God on Friday

** I am thankful that Jamison's party went well. She was so happy the entire time. One evening while I was making some things for her party she told me that I was the best party planner ever. That was all I needed to hear.

** Lastly, I am thankful for God. I have had a rough and grumpy week for some reason. I have snapped at people, been really annoyed with people and just have had an overall grumpy attitude. I can't pinpoint a specific thing, I think it is just a combination of a lot of little things...people who are dear to my heart are struggling with temptation and doubt, friendships are disconnected, I feel like I'm at a loss of how to help Jamison with her emotional roller coaster (she is VERY emotional and it is hard to help her control those emotions), etc. BUT through all of this I know that God is bigger than all of those things and can conquer them. He is merciful, unconditional, loving, all-knowing. And while it may not feel like it right now, He's carrying me (and others) through. I am thankful for God!

So true! As trying as these times are, it's so comforting to know that God is still {and always} who He says He is. Hope your week gets better!

Everyone gets grumpy, and you don't always need to pinpoint it. Sometimes it IS just a lot of little things that catch up with you. God is good.
