hodge podge

I've been rolling around so many 'gratituesday' posts in my head this morning - they've ranged anywhere from

conveniences we're blessed with here in the US
this lovely post about blurry lines
our warm home on this cold winter day
the day off from work yesterday to get a ton of stuff done
the wonderful group of ladies I met over the weekend and the vendor show we're planning (stay tuned!)

yes... quite a hodge podge of blessings huh.

But then I realized how blessed and thankful I am to have too many things to write about.  The Lord has been so good to us.  And not in monetary means either - I don't want anyone believing that God blesses you with 'materialistic' blessings if you follow Him... it's not like that.  It's the joy He blesses you with in whatever circumstance you are in right now.  We've got big things coming down the pipe line in the next couple months and I couldn't be more thrilled or scared by them.  BUT... I know we're in our Lord's will right now and the blessings He will bestow upon us are going to be amazing.  Look for the blessings of peace, patience, love to be overflowing around here. :)   The circumstances may not be easy but the joy of following and obey God will outshine any problems that arise.

May you feel the love and joy in Jesus today.

  1. I love what you said about its the joy in the circumstance. I think that is how we know we are in the right place with the Lord. He gives us joy even when things are hard or scary.

  2. HI there! I found you from Sarah Mae's blog. Loved your comment and I completely agree!
