Today I am thankful for health! Though today, I actually don’t feel very well. But I am thankful that while my family has suffered repeatedly over the last two months, I have been spared to take care of them. And I’m thankful that even though I am ill now I am still not so sick that I can’t take care of them at the same time. Mostly, I am thankful that even we get sick, God is there to carry us through! I know that even though I’m not well today, He’s going to sustain me throughout my day. And I’m going to be thankful for health in spite of present sickness, because I know that good health will return.

I’m also thankful for:

  • my husband and three beautiful children, I love them very much
  • my friends who “sharpen” me and keep me accountable
  • the Easter holiday, which serves to remind me of my sin, my need for a savior, and Jesus who bought me with his blood!

Thankful Thursday hosted by Sting My Heart.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
