today i'm thankful for:

waking up in my own bed
in a cool room
with the birds chirping
(even if they were a little too loud)

grinding and brewing my coffee
exactly the way i like it
with a splash of my favorite vanilla syrup
and milk.

kids who woke up slowly
and quietly
without fussing
and who can fix their own breakfast
without complaining

memories of a great week at camp
with friends 
with extreme heat cooled by rolling waves
with awesome times of worship
(Your love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me....)

a washer and dryer that work really well
to do most of the work in getting 
the sand and smushed bugs out of shorts and tshirts

a boy whose eyes sparkle every time 
we mention the words -
"turning 10"

a loving God who speaks to 
the deepest parts of my heart
-the ones that have been weighing me down
and holding me back-
in unexpected ways

He reminds me that He loves me
that His is the only love that comes without condition
without expectation
without rejection



  1. You are blessed! Can't wait to see you tomorrow :)
