Thankful

Sitting here this morning, I have been thinking a lot about all the things I am thankful for. I am thankful for my amazing family and friends. I am thankful for a roof over my head and a vehicle to take me places. I am thankful that God provides. Most of all I am thankful for Christ’s work on the cross.  Christ became sin for me, took the blame, and bore the wrath so I could be forgiven. What a powerful message. “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen as he said.”  Were it not for the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ, I would not have the promise of an eternity in Heaven with Him. My name is written in His wounds. “It is Finished” is our victory cry!

This week we had an answer to prayer- Avery’s will grow out of her heart murmur with no problems. The results were “normal” for her age! We thank God daily for his many blessings. We are still having some problems with Avery’s eyes, but she will see the specialist on May 11. Hoping we will get some answers then.

We have found a van that will fit our family’s needs more and will be getting it on Monday. We will be downsizing to one car, but for now it will save us money and we don’t really need 2 vehicles with Dan working from home. God provides!

Savannah is going to stay with my sister in Ohio for a few days this week. Pray for Daniel and I as she has not been away from us (other than when Avery was born) for more than 1 night, and she is going to be far away too! We will drop her off on Wednesday and then head to Ohio on Friday for the weekend to spend time with some friends and meet Baby Isabel! We can’t wait!
