Tonight, I am thankful to the Lord for so much.
Here's a smattering of sentimentality...
This sweet girl who "trained" her toad. "Look Mom! He stayed!"
An impromptu bonfire and camp-out in our backyard.
Those cute toes. I just wanna kiss 'em.
(Oh yes, we did sleep like enchiladas all rolled up and stuffed together in this small tent and I got to sleep next to the smallest little enchilada who liked to "unroll" every now and then, landing on my head - thanks for asking...)
My handsome boys.
My beautiful Emilia all dressed up in my wedding attire. Okay, take it off. You can't grow up yet. Hand me a Kleenex.
Being Wife and Mom. I dig it. So, so thankful the Lord has given me this family.
Pretty pink flowers. Marveling at the intricacies that God creates.
Books. Real, paper bound books. Hold them, smell them, love them.
The love of learning that this girl has and my ability to learn along with her. So cool. Did I mention that I enjoy homeschooling? I think I may have...
Tonight in our family devotion time, we were reading Ephesians 2:1-10.
vs. 8 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast."
Thank you, Father, that we don't have to work our way into Heaven (since that would be impossible).
Thank you - most of all - for the gift of salvation through your son, Jesus Christ.
