Out Of The Blue - Pockets of Thankful

It's been a tough week. I haven't seen the likes of this kind of pruning in quite a while. And just when you think it's good, God has other plans. Ouch. I feel a little battered today. Walking outside to fill the water tables up for our weekly outside water day at preschool, I looked down. I saw two beautiful, strong legs that amaze me. These have carried me through so much and done things I never imagined they could...I could....and I found a pocket of thankful in that moment. Thank You Lord for two strong healthy legs. I can walk. I can run. I can move with ease, without much thought. I am so blessed. We take the little for granted sometimes when things seem to loom. But in the big picture I have what I need. And today I am choosing thankful.  


  1. Such a great reminder to choose to be thankful; rather than taking our blessings for granted! Thank you!

  2. The Lord bathe you in His showers of love! He makes you a strong oak! ~ Pam, apples of gold,

  3. Yes and Amen, Kimberly. Isn't it funny how we can be surprised by something so everyday? And yet it's not everyday but totally amazing.

    Choosing gratitude with you, sister!
