To the point that I call my unsuspecting husband to pray for me and ask if he might seriously consider finding work in a sunnier location??? (no, we have no real plans to move)
To the point where I get out my thankful notebook and ask seven-year-old son whatever can we be thankful about because my soul is sick and I cannot see the blessings all around me.
His and my list:
#13 Erector set
#14 Glass windows (this is always our go-to from the Little House series)
#15 Frozen blueberries
#16 Shelter from the rain
#17 Visits from friends bringing yummy tea and snacks to share
#18 Toilets, yes, they are wonderful inventions, just flush it right down...well, usually!
#25 Beautiful couples just married reminding of passionate love and the joy of matrimony
#26 Acts chapter 4--they remembered Peter and John were with Jesus, Who is the Only One salvation can be found!!!
Brian pointed out to me an order in creation in Genesis 1 which I'd not noticed before. But it brought me hope. It is so repetitious it's sad I've never noticed before. "And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day." This repeats for all six days of creation, evening and morning, evening and morning.....
