Thankful Thursday

Giving thanks this week for:

~posts by iron-sharpening women.  Aimee's post on submission really hit home. Kim's words on gurus are wise, indeed.

~my girl's return for a few days. She's been gone quite a bit this summer and it's been rather strange.

~God's reproof and correction through Scripture. Handling a situation the way He wants, rather than how I want, brings such peace. Why is my heart so stubborn and resistant?

~garden bounty

~time spent with my 90-year old grandmother.

~a change in the way we live

~my man standing strong beside me as I look on Mama's name etched in stone for the first time

~air conditioning in these dog days of summer

~the Word become flesh

My little guy's been doing a few more independent things this summer, too. Though it's not overnight or anything, your "it's been a little strange" is beginning to seep in here, too. And your sweet mom--- I know you are missing her. Praying for you often!
