Thankful Thursday: Inaugural Edition

I have wanted to start sharing more personal things on my blog for while.  I have a tendency to toss ideas around in my head for months before taking the leap of action.  Thinking everything through is a strong point for me, calculating all parts is my thing, but sometimes a strength can also be a weakness.  I’ll consider everything and if there’s enough negative possibilities I may decide against it.  Anyways, Thankful Thursdays has been on my mind and I’m giving myself the green light!  I hope to share a variety of things like our travels, Elijah, and fun thoughts.  Here we go!
As I laid my 8-week-old son down for a morning nap and quietly stepped out of his room.  I had a clear thought that was not from me.  “Spend time with me.”  Well that’s hard to argue with, so I went to my Jesus Calling Devotional
November 12
“This is a time of abundance in your life.  Your cup runneth over with blessings.  After plodding uphill for many weeks, you are now traipsing through lush meadows drenched in warm sunshine.  I want you to enjoy to the full this time of ease and refreshment.  I delight in providing it for you.”
Wait, what?  How’d You know?  After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I read it again.  Plodding uphill.  Yes that was me!  The last weeks of pregnancy, a difficult delivery, the first weeks of my son’s life.  Uphill is a gentle way to describe it!  It’s wild how thousands of people can have this same devotional book, but that entry was meant for me.
My God is always generous, but I am not always grateful.  Goodness, I’m not always aware of His generosity.  We are to be grateful in all things, while plodding uphill and in the lush meadows.  I don’t deserve anything from His hands, but I will receive His blessings with an attentive, grateful heart.
