I am thankful God delights in expectancy and not in fulfilled expectations.
I am grateful that truth of His love is so much greater than the lies of the Deceiver.
I am overwhelmed, awed, and amazed that His Spirit is willing to dwell in me.
I am thankful that he never, ever, ever gives up on me.
I am thankful that I have experienced His love through other people...like my mother.
I'm thankful that there is still beauty to be found in this ole' world (I took all the flower pictures in my gardens this morning).
I'm grateful for things that make me smile...like 7 year old girls who asked their grandmother, "Am I a 'young adult'?"
I'm grateful for little girlies who like cold icy-pops on a hot summer afternoo (she really was eating one!).
I'm grateful for one last summer with the pool.
I'm thankful that I'm not a military wife who has to move many, many times....and thankful to those who are and are willing to do that.
