Where Is the Light?

I’ll be short.  I am thankful.  I am thankful that I get to be a wife to Kris.  I am thankful that I get to be a mom to John Henry and Anna.  I am thankful.

I am thankful that I get to sleep in with my children.

I am thankful that I if I ever need to work full-time, I can.

I am thankful.

I am thankful that I have clean water.

I am thankful that I can go to a local grocer and feed my family.

I am thankful that I live in a country that was founded on the Word of God.

I am thankful.

I am thankful that I have a father who proclaims the Gospel of the Kingdom.

I am thankful that I have a mother who reminds me that I serve a faithful Creator.

I am thankful that I have friends who not only hold me accountable to live a life that brings glory to Him, but who LOVE me.  I mean really love me.

I am thankful.

When things seem dim, or dark, or questionable, I remember.

I am thankful.

Because, I am a child of God.

I am thankful.

So, when you are struggling seeing the light at the end of your tunnel, remember.  You are a child of the most high God. 

Who was bought with a price.

So, let’s just be thankful.

M’kay?
