Thankful Thursday

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.

Ok, now I'm going to have to jump over to my blog and post about how THANKFUL I am I have a job. I complain, but during these economic times, I should just shut my mouth, no wait, open my mouth and sing praises to God for my job.

Thanks for the reminder! See, I'm thankful for you too!
