Since last week’s list the roller coaster of events and emotions associated with a missing loved one have reached highest climb and raced to the bottom of the hill only to slowly clink back up for another spin. The adrenalin high, emotions confused, and a God who has my back make for a successful and exciting week.
And the list grows…Thanks to my friend Beth I started writing my thanks in my morning prayer journal and enjoy starting my quiet time expressing my appreciation for all God does in my life. Yet to accept this challenge to find 1,000 things this year is a mere three a day! Everyone can find 3 things to be thankful for. In the beginning I started with “Thank you that I’m alive” or “Thanks for my family” yet through the years I find it gets easier to say “Thank you for the breath in my lungs, for the body you’ve given me to serve and share for you. Thank you for loving me enough…” Amen.
