Here we are for another week of Thankful Thursday! I must confess that I was a terrible picture taker this week. It was a fairly quiet week, nothing too crazy or exciting happened. But, it gave me time to really reflect on how important it is for me to be thankful for the quiet moments.
Doing this weekly post and link up focusing on gratitude has been so good for me. It has forced me to take time each day and thank God for the blessings in my life. We're in an interesting season. Having little ones running around means we're constantly busy, but yet, it's quiet, too. We're not stretched super thin with school or extracurricular activities. And I'm perfectly ok with that. Happy about that, in fact.
But sometimes I find myself rushing the season I'm in, whatever season that may be. Always looking forward to the future, anticipating what is next. While it's good prepare for the future, the Lord has been challenging me to really live in the moment. I heard the quote "Life is about enjoying what God has given us and given us to do.
So this week, I'm thankful for this season. I'm thankful for my family and friends. I'm thankful for the task He has appointed me to do at this time. I look forward to the future, but I'm soaking in the here and now.
Also, I'm thankful for coffee! :)
