Giving Thanks Today


We fold our hands, bow our heads and give thanks to our Father in Heaven. She is seven and loves to be close to me; I love to hold her and cuddle up to read our Bible.

When night comes, I see a lamp on in my sons' bedroom; I peek inside and find them reading their Bible. My young lady keeps a journal, with prayers and thanks.

These are gifts that I treasure. These are gifts that comes from God. My husband and I have been obedient in teaching our children the Word; we have talked to them when they rise, when they lay down, when we walk and when we sit at the table, however, it is not because of us that our children are walking in the Truth. It is a gift that comes from God. I would say that it is in spite of us, that our children are walking in light.

My gratitude list goes on, and today I am grateful for these...

873. My children reading the Bible and praying on their own.

874. A little one holding my hand to pray.

875. A precious little girl reciting several passages from the Scripture.

876.  A homeschool curriculum that requires my children to read "The Holiness of God", by Sproul

877. Books written for children that not only teach "Bible stories", but deep truths, grounded in sound doctrine.

878. Surprising my daughter and taking her early in the morning to Starbucks.

892. My beautiful daughter learning how to make buttons for our blogs :)

893. The moon.

895. Fingers dancing over the piano keys, filling my heart with joy and my eyes with tears.

896. Learning to persevere in prayer.

897. Filling pages on my journal.

898. Reminding my soul not to worry about tomorrow.

899. God's promises for His own.

900. Seasons of life. (The painting at the beginning of this post is one I painted in one  of the seasons of my life, where I spent my days playing with pigments and water))

Raise your voice with me, and give Him thanks, for His mercies are new every morning!

My Photo
If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
