more thanks

I've been really caught recently with my need for more of the Word of God in my life... If it is "living and active and sharper than a two-edged sword" why would I settle for so starving my heart or feeding on dead crumbs for my soul? I want that which the Creator and Author of all life calls "Living" and I want it pulsing it's Life in my fading frame.

~ I am so grateful that God has given us his Word,
~ revealed himself to us in it, through it,
~ allows us to chew it up and get it into our hearts, heads, bloodstream, soul,
~ changing us, transforming us by it into more of his image.

~ So grateful for the all-suprassing power of the Gospel
~ which is not a message of my own sufficiency or power
~ but is a boast in God who spoke light to shine out of darkness
~ and caused "the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ" to shine in our hearts. (2 Cor 4: 6.)

Man! Have we ever got it good!?

And grateful...

~ to be married to the funnest, most loving man I can imagine: my best friend, my dreamy love.

~ for kids growing big- Isaiah is almost an inch taller than last month- I must have measured goofy on our homemade growth chart!?

~ grateful for the opportunity to give to new kids, to include new friends in our home

~ for a super fantastic bagels recipe and bulk pricing on 4 pounds of cream cheese to take the edge off the end of this fourth first trimester

~ for the store that carries cream cheese (maybe the only store in our whole province? and it's only a 15 minute bike ride from us!)

~ for the other foreign groceries they sell: cheese, butter, corn flakes...

~ for a rainy day, refreshing to the soul

~ for a boy who is learning more about loving others

~ a girl who loves that her mom and dad love each other

~ for a little boy who is on the verge of running

~ for the little growing one inside me- pure gift!

~ for friends who wrote me such encouragement last week when I needed it

~ for a skype date with precious girlfriends all gathered together!
