Today...

I'm thankful.

Thankful for a great floor plan for our new home;
a builder who is moving fast;
and a family that is growing closer
- to God and each other -
through it all.

I'm thankful for new beginnings,
fresh starts,
little pushes that get me outside of my comfort zone.

I'm thankful for a garden full of tomatoes,
and the resulting spaghetti sauce,
and salsa...

I'm so thankful for my sweet sister-in-law,
and other friends who have brought us meals,
and offered us help when we're overwhelmed.

I appreciate the new little orange cat
that decided to adopt us.
He's trying to fill the big shoes that Fiffen left behind
when he decided to go on a little adventure -
that's turning into a long adventure.
If you see him, tell him to hurry home.

Meanwhile, I appreciate this cat;
whom we refer to as
"the Squirrely cat."


Even if Scooter doesn't...

He's a little spastic;
and does greatly resemble a squirrel...
Huge bushy tail.
But he is pretty sweet,
and he sure knows how to cheer people up.

I'm thankful for
"Strength for today, and bright hopes for tomorrow..."


I'm being continually reminded of God's faithfulness to us,
even when I'm unable to recognize it all as "good" -
it is,
and today I'm thankful for that.

I am so sorry to hear that Fiffen is missing! That must be really sad for you.

Isn't God good to provide you a little orange friend to help cheer you up? What a cutie that little guy is.

I am continuing to keep you in my prayers. Thank you for your encouraging, faith-filled outlook. It is a testimony and a challenge to me.
