Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Iris is at Grace Alone and this week she talks about change. I too have great difficulty with change. Perhaps the one area in life that affects me most with change is my children. When my first daughter moved out I had a real hard time with this praying daily nearly all day long I would pray and not cease. I was unable to accept all and prayed alot that the Lord would help me allow my daughter to make her own mistakes and that he would guide her in life and allow me to not controll the situation. In the end all worked out well there. Second my son moved out which we had great time talking about this but I knew that he would be coming home on breaks etc... so this was not so difficult. However, this year my oldest son will be away in school again and this year my other daughter gets ready to go to school. I worry, pray and know that the Lord will take care of all. I am thankful that I have such a great family that will bind together when needed but is active enough to go out in the world alone. I am thankful that the lessons I taught them through their life will stay with them as they have demonstrated this more than once. I am also thankful after a family mishap where we had a "burp" in life that my family has also demonstrated they love each other so much that forgivness comes quickly.
what are you thankful for today?


  1. This is just wonderful my friend. It's always hard on parents to let their children grow up and make their own mistakes but it's so necessary :)
