day 25

thankful or God's protection over Jacob- what could have been a serious injury, is healing rather quickly!
while playing on thanksgiving evening, jacob managed to fall with a small dowel rod in his mouth, puncturing a hole in between the crotch of his upper and lower jaw. it was deep enough that we took him to the ER. an ambulance ride to children's hospital, and 5 dr's later, they ended up sending him home with just a prescription for some pain killers. no stitches and no permanent damage- thank the Lord!

thankful, once again, for my husband! i could find a different reason every day to be thankful for him, but today i am most thankful for what God has done in his heart and in his life. and thankful that he was able to share that with our church body this morning and take the step of obedience to be baptized.

thankful, day 1-7

i saw some friends on facebook have been doing a "month of thanks", writing about 1 thing they are thankful for each day for the month of November. i'd rather log it here, so i can easily go back and read it a year or 2, or 10, down the road.

so i am jumping into this a week late, i'll try to get caught up.

1. my husband, who loves me despite being totally baffled by the mind of a woman (you know, the hormonal part :) ) and despite the times when i am not so lovable. God has blessed me with a wonderful man!

2. how surprisingly well my kids adjusted to the daylight savings "fall back". 2nd day in, it's 7:30am (8:30) and they are still asleep!!

3. our rooster that was our dinner last night.

4. flannel sheets.

5. cooked sushi.

6. friends who are like family.

7. the beauty of God's creation that we are privileged to enjoy with the radiant colors of the changing leaves during these past few weeks.
