Everyday is a Day of Thanksgiving: Day 2

“God’s been so good to me. Everyday He’s blessing Me. Take the time to glorify the Lord today!”

Today, I am thankful for God’s provision.

I sat and thought for a minute about where he’s brought my family over the last 8 years and I was just totally amazed.

When we were first married, we had nothing. A sofa that was given to us by one of my co-workers, a chair we were given when a dorm at our old college was remodeled, and a set of mismatched dishes and pots that my parents gave us. We did have some wonderful wedding gift gadgets, but that was about it.

It was such a humbling experience. We were both dillusional and thought that since we’d gone to college, we would be instantly wealthy. But of course, that’s not how it happened.

I remember one time when we only had $5 to last us an entire week. My husband boldly lead me into the grocery store and loaded our basket with eggs (6-pack), bread, lunch meat (that 50 cent, extra thinly sliced kind), a pack of hot dog weiners, spaghetti and a can of tomatoe paste. And we ate nicely that week as we waited for payday.

Those times help me remember where God has brought us from. He’s been with us the entire way, ordaining and orchestrating circumstances to mold us into who He would have us to be. If we never had valley experiences, it would be harder for us to realize when we are on the mountaintop.

So today, I want to thank you Lord for your hand of provision, your favor and loving hand of guidance.

    I am thankful for my Lord, Wife, Family, Friends and Health. I am thankful for all of the little things in life. I am also thankful for Chanda being obedient to God’s for the gift that He has given you through this website…
    My wife and I do not have kids of our own, but through teaching children I am directly involved with kids. I know that “I am not supposed to talk religion” in the classroom but I can’t be who I am if I didn’t reference my God in some way, shape and form. I know that when the day comes and the Lord finds favor for us to have children, we will be ready!!!
