Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Counting My Blessings

I'm thankful for so many things today. I'm thankful for health even though I'm getting over bronchitis. I'm thankful I was able to get into the dr. even though it wasn't my "usual" and for antibiotics and for the money to pay for all this medical care. I'm thankful for the boys' endocrinologist, their new medical alert bracelets and that they are still on the right growth curve.

I'm thankful for the weather today even though it was rainy! It was still very fall! The breeze and dampness are actually very nice. I enjoyed the beautiful color on the way to pick up Dad today.

I'm thankful that Dad receives such excellent care at the Veteran's Center and that he was able to come see M. play his football game today. I'm thankful for Aunt coming to so many of the boys' activities.

I'm thankful that Hubby cleaned the bathroom and that he just took L. to get a movie for us to see tonight. I'm thankful for the snack supper and evening together that we are getting ready to share.

I'm thankful I was able to post the Month of Thanksgiving button. Click on it on my sidebar and visit Tamara at Branch of Wisdom!
