Good morning ladies. Today is Gratituesday. A time we set aside to give praise and honor to our Father. I was thinking of this scripture this morning.

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!"

How can we not give all praise and honor to God since he loves us forever? Today I am thankful for new beginnings. Yesterday we went to a dear friends farm for a BBQ. Many of my grandchildren were there. I got to watch our little Sarah pick up her first chicken (poor thing, no not Sarah but the chicken)! I got to love on some babies that aren't mine. It was a perfect ending to a wild summer. Thank you Abba.

In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".


  1. Jill, I had tears in my eyes as I read your comment on my blog. I am so very sorry for your losses. You are right, our children belong to the Lord alone. While, I know this in my head, it is so tough to apply it to my heart. He alone holds all in His hands. Thank you for sharing your comment with me. I appreciate your story more than you know. May you be blessed today :)
