I can't believe it is Thursday again already. OK, this week I just have to say I am thankful for my kitchen. I caught myself complaining to Chris the other day that I want a bigger kitchen. It was like God stopped me right then and I looked at Chris and I said to Chris "Oh my goodness, I should not be complaining about my kitchen I should be thankful that I have a kitchen". So today I am very thankful that I have a kitchen no matter how big it is.
As most of you know Chris and I own some land that we pray we can build a house on someday. We also have a dream of bringing more kiddos home, that's right I didn't say just one I said more. Lately it just seems like this isn't ever going to happen. Both of our dreams take a lot of money and everytime we seem to start getting ahead a little bit something happens that puts us back a step or 2 back. I saw this prayer this morning and I just thought it was perfect.
Dear Lord, keep me focused on the vision you place within me, and let me not grow weary. I pray that you will give me courage and perseverance to deal with opposition and the challenges that lie ahead. Lord, as I seek you with unwavering faith, may you grant me wisdom and guidance to take practical steps to accomplish this vision. Amen
Have a wonderful day and remember to be thankful for the things that frustrate you because chances are someone is worse off than you.
