Rejoicing!


:o) Nope not for the reason you think...lol No adoption news.

But I am still rejoicing.

Last night God reminded me through my devotion that I am to live in the moment. Enjoy what I have now. Rejoice in the many blessings I have in life right now!

I do rejoice in them. I am so very blessed with a most amazing husband, children, parents, in laws, friends, and church.

I have a roof over my head, running clean water, a job, a vehicle and food in my pantry.

Best of all I have a God who loves me and takes a minute out of his day to remind me that He's already blessed me in so many ways. Not in reprimand, but with a joyful remembering!

This morning I was reminded closer to home, the real need to enjoy the life I have now, in the death of a close family friend.

Life is short. Life can be hard. Life can be extremely painful. But we are asked to rejoice in it all.

So today I choose to rejoice in the children I have. I also choose to rejoice in the knowledge that if we are to have more children that He is going to make it happen. In HIS time.

What's going on in your life that I can rejoice over as well?

I love your attitude! But you're completely right, we must rejoice over all the good gifts He's given us and not wait until they might be taken away from us to realize that we should be thankful!

So I am abundantly thankful for our house, my husband being able to walk, health, warmth, food, the kids I have living in my home and of course, the daughter we are soon going to get in Ethiopia!

SO much, So MUCH, SO MUCH to be thankful for!!!!

In His time,
Laura
