While writing this week’s #ThoughtofThanks I’m reminded of the true reason behind starting this weekly routine. God laid an idea on my heart to encourage others to see “it’s completely possible to find something to be thankful for no matter your circumstances.” Even in the worst moments, God has graciously blessed ALL of us with multiple reasons to be thankful. How different would this world look if we adorned ourselves with an attitude of gratitude each morning? Regardless of how imperfect or perfect life seems we must be thankful.
After a week that felt NEVER ending– full of extra puking, amplified pain, extreme fatigue & heightened misery from a deeply broken body, I’m praising God for the happiness He brought this weekend. The sunshine brightened my spirit, a dear friend surprised me with colorful flowers, my best friend stopped in for a cherished visit, my fiancé got me out of the house for a little shopping & time of togetherness.
I made it to church Sunday morning & had QT with my 2 big brothers whom I adore. Also, my mom & aunt spent Sunday afternoon assembling wedding invitations for the big day in less than 2 months (excited squeal!)
What an amazing support system I have been undeservingly blessed with!
Through this pain, through the suffering that weighs heavy every minute of the day, I’m able to smile because my God reveals beauty & joy & meaning that come from His perfect love. He has a plan to turn every bit of this nightmare into something gloriously beautiful. How can I not give thanks?!
