All in Thankfulness


Good news: My husband got a new job.

Bad news: We had to relocate from the place we had lived for twenty years.

Good news: We got our house ready and put it on the market to sell.

Bad news: Although people came to see it, no one put an offer on it.

Good news: A family did put an offer on it and we accepted it.

Bad news: The closing date got pushed out much further delaying our move.

Good news: We found a house we liked in our new location.

Bad news: Someone else beat us putting a contract on it.

Thank you, Lord

Sometimes we have really hard days. Recently, both of my children had the stomach bug and I had to wash my couch multiple times. As I was sitting in my kitchen, wallowing in self-pity and folding laundry, I look up to see the verse I have on the felt board in my kitchen, “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell all of your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1. It was as if the Lord was in my kitchen and said, “Hey Emily, look at this”.
