Thank You!!!


I just wanted to say "thank you" to all of you who left such kind comments and birthday greetings on our blog yesterday! I am so blessed to know that you have enjoyed our blog and I pray that it will continue to encourage you in your walk with the Lord. It was great to hear from some of you that I haven't ever heard from, and reconnecting with others that I hadn't heard from for awhile and of course hearing from my dear friends! It always amazes me how God has connected different people from all over the world!!!!

I had a great day yesterday. As always, my family spoiled me and true to an 18 yr. tradition (I guess some of those would have ended up on a Sunday!), I got to spend part of it on the combine!

I am just so thankful that God chose to give me life 41 yrs. ago! What a great journey it has been so far. Living and Learning! That's what life has been and continues to be.

I love being 41. Even though things change (ie bones creak a little more, pregnancies are a little less easy, memory is not as reliable) I don't feel old!!!! Weird how that happens! In my mind I am still 20 something! I remember thinking that people over 40 were really quite old!!! And now here I am, not feeling old at all (most days!)

I hope over the years that I have gained much wisdom and that I will be able to pass this on to my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren......God has been so good to me! I am so blessed!

And to be "with child" at the age of 41 just adds the icing on the cake. As I go through each pregnancy these days I realize that my "biological clock" is ticking and the way that I have known life for 21+ years is going to change. It makes me a little sad to think of the day that I may never carry a child again and experience the blessings and wonder of being pregnant. Yet I know this day will come (unless I am another Sarah!!!!!) and then I will go on in the adventure that God leads me on with joy in my heart....because I know this is His plan for me! But for now I will cherish every moment of this pregnancy! (I can say that now, cause I think morning sickness has passed :)

Do you ever just feel overwhelmed by the goodness of God? That's how I feel today as I look around at my husband (well I would be looking at him if he were here!), and my family and think about what a blessing they are to me! It has been a great life so far!!!!! Thank you God! How are you feeling overwhelmed by God's goodness today? Would you share....please???

You have encouraged me!
