Here we go again....

Well, it is days like these where I struggle to find beauty. Instead of finding things to be thankful for, my tendency is that of all-around negativity. Thanks to this blog, however, I am forcing myself to come up with something of which to report thankfulness.

Although I took my amazing husband and best friend to the airport today for a 42 day long trip, I am thankful that he is so willing to look after me. He sacrifices his safety and comfort in order to provide for me and that is amazing.

I am thankful for my family members for calling me and for the outpouring of love I have received from them. I am thankful for my sweet puppy who doesn't care if I cry or mope around the house for the rest of the day, but who willingly snuggles with me and gives me sweet puppy kisses like no other puppy kisses I've ever had. I am thankful that this coming weekend we will celebrate a most joyous holiday! I am so thankful for Easter because ultimately when this life is over I know I will spend eternity in heaven as a result of the sacrifice that Christ made for my sinful life that will never be good enough to enter heaven without His intercession. I am thankful knowing I will spend this eternity with my family and many many dear friends.

I could keep going on, so at the end of this day that I thought had no reason for thankfulness, I reveal to my wounded soul that it has reason to rejoice! So, rejoice, be glad and sing. There are many things for which to be thankful.
