…give thanks.  1 Thessalonians 5:18

Wow.  Tough one.  Easier said than done. 

I’ve been working on it for quite a while now.  2 years and 25 weeks to be exact.

Sometimes people still ask, “How do you do it?”  At first, my answer was always “One breath at a time.”  Some days, it’s still the most accurate response.  Most times though, I point out we have no choice.  And then I add that everyone has something to deal with, some struggle to face…

Don’t misunderstand me…  I don’t interpret this verse in an exact literal way…  I’m not thankful that I lost my son in a horrific manner.  Or that my husband struggles regularly with anger and guilt over it.  Or that our daughters have lost what remained of their childhood.

Having a grateful heart, giving praise when the worst has happened, invites light into the darkness…and He can work good wherever He’s invited…





Wishing you a day filled with abundant blessings and beautiful memories…
