As we close 2017 into 2018, once again I am thankful for the gift of Life. I know for a fact that many have lost their lives throughout the year or perhaps many have lost their loved ones. And in those moments, I am reminded yet again that life is a gift; in fact, every second of breathe is a precious gift that I am thankful for.
I am thankful for God’s constant grace and a love that is ever present.
I am thankful for God’s provision in so many ways. Through out 2017, God has provided above and beyond for our needs as a family and I do not take that for granted.
Full of good health, we have watched our children grow not only in age but in many other precious little ways only a parent can notice and for that I am forever grateful.
Wrapped up in my husband’s arms, I have gone to sleep every single night of 2017 and I thank God for those moments. I thank God for my man/my sweetheart/my friend/companion.
Friends have been like precious droplets of water in a desert. I am thankful for my/our family friends who have loved us relentlessly. I personally think of myself as hard to love or one who tends to run from being loved but my precious friends have loved me and left me with no room to doubt the fact that I am loved more than my silly words can ever explain and for that I am forever thankful.
Even with the most imperfect extended family, I am thankful for the flourishing relationships and hopeful for those that need to be worked on.
For 2018, my hope and prayer is that I personally will continue to seek the Lord with all my heart. To hunger tirelessly for His word. I pray that Psalm 23 will stay at the tip of my tongue to constantly remind me that Christ is with me every second of my life. And to not doubt His love for me under whatever circumstance.
I hope and pray for peace in our hearts as a nation/world.
As a wife and mother, I hope and pray that I will depend on Christ in knowing how to love and encourage my husband and children. To be love in our home. To constantly build and not break and to pray for my family without seizing.
Happy New year to y’all!
