a life of gratitude (142-162) and Days 20 & 21

It is a quiet day at home. The girls are traveling with the grands. The Man and I have all weekend together. I feel incredibly blessed. Yet my heart-strings feel like they are being pulled tight. The Lord is teaching me something that I don’t really want to learn. He is Jehovah Jireh. He will provide. I have to trust. It is hard to trust so completely and so fully when I have done it with my own strength for so long. But I am trying. Trying to trust Him. Learning to trust Him. Even when I can not see the final result.

Thanking Him for so many things……

142. Jehovah Jireh – my provider

143. Learning hard lessons

144. Grands that are willing to double their travel time and distant to ensure that the entire family will be together for Thanksgiving

145. Grands who take the girls into their homes and love them unconditionally – and give them haircuts that are greatly needed.

146. Making reservations for DATE NIGHT!!!

147. Thanksgiving lunch with an amazing homeschool group
