** I am thankful for a verse that I saw over on Kelly's blog:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
I love this because it gives a fresh start...new every morning. It's a reminder of how He loves me...unconditionally. How amazing is that! I've been struggling because lately I have not been giving Him my best...my best time, my best attention, my best praise. I'm still reading through the Bible (trying to do it in a year) and while I read daily I'm not giving it my all...Him my all. This verse is comforting to help me remember that He doesn't stop loving me because I casually read my reading for that day. It doesn't give me the excuse to casually read everyday, but it frees me from the guilt if for some reason I do. His love never ceases!
** I am thankful for this morning's sunrise. It was absolutely beautiful and such a peaceful way to drive into work. I'm also very thankful that the temps are going to be a bit higher this weekend (40's!)...I might even crack a window.
** I am thankful that my husband is on board for Big Clean Saturday. This will be happening at our house tomorrow where everything will be cleaned...bathrooms, vacuuming, dusting (yuk!), everything finding a home, etc. He even went to Target and stocked up on various cleaning supplies.
** I am thankful for Jamison's teacher. She is such an encouragement to both us as parents and Jamison as her student. I met with her yesterday for parent/teacher conferences and she just spoke very highly of Jamison and gave me some great tips on how to help Jamison with her math homework. She even told me that she has chosen Jamison as a role model for a program that they are having at her school. Basically, Jamison will model behavior for other girls in her grade who are having some conflicts.
