We're getting nearer to the holiday season. Thanksgiving is next week! We have been very busy with life so that sort of snuck up on me. Right now we are dealing with Ernie being unemployed, and court issues with Gavin, and trying to decide what to do with the future. Its easy to feel stressed and worried and feel like there's not much to be thankful for. But there is.I am thankful that we have a God who loves us. No matter what we are going through, whether we think something is hopeless, or we don't have the answers, God loves us. He has continued, over and over, to provide for us when we saw no way. I am thankful for my husband. We have had some extra things to deal with in our marriage, with having to share Gavin with another parent, and sometimes it is easier to focus on the stressful things. But I am very thankful for him. He is a wonderful man and a wonderful dad. I am thankful for Sophie and Gavin. They are sweet kids and it is wonderful to get to be part of their lives and teach them new things and watch them grow.I am thankful for our extended family that cares for us.I am thankful we have a roof over our heads and food to eat.I am thankful that I can know that this too shall pass...whenever we think things are bad, we can at least know that things are also ever changing. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present you requests to God. ~Phil. 4:6
