You never know what path in life God is going to lead you. What I am reminded of right now is to be ever thankful! ⠀⠀
“In all things we have thanks to give. We are blessed overflowing. Everyday is a day to be thankful for. Everyday is filled with moments, people and blessings to be thankful for. In practicing gratitude and thankfulness we find our lives full and joy filled.”
I wrote these words last year and they couldn’t be more true. As Nick and I prepare for his knee surgery this week we face a season in which we aren’t sure exactly what the next few months will look like. The reality of it all hit me hard today. As we drove home after Nick’s pre-op for Wednesday I was a bit of a mess.
We can focus on our fears and uncertainties. We can focus on what isn’t going right or seems unfair. OR we can give thanks in all things. We can ask the Lord to use these seasons to grow us, to help us lean into God, to see the blessings we have all around us. ⠀⠀
Please pray for Nick! He has surgery on Wednesday to repair his patellar tendon. Pray for his safety, for the surgeon’s skilled hand and for God to watch over Nick and the procedure!
