Thursday's Thanksgivings


As always, there's much to be thankful for today.  

The past few extremely hot days I have been so thankful for a working air conditioner.  Just because you are blessed to have one doesn't mean that it always works properly.  I am thankful today that ours does.  Boy, it's been hot!

I am also thankful that our van is working as it should now.  Our van was in the shop for a while, and it's good to have it back home.  I am thankful to those in my family (Dad and Kam) who lent us your vehicles during our time of need!  

I know that I all too often take comforts and conveniences for granted.  I never want to become too dependent on them; yet I am very thankful.  I pray that our family will use what God has blessed us with for His glory and as a means to bless others.  This world is definitely not our home.  I pray for grace to avoid the mindset that I'm planning on staying!  

But with that being said, I am very thankful for our home.  We are still trying to get settled in.  We are enjoying having a yard, too, that is fun and safe for the kids to play.  Here are some recent pictures of John David and Claire enjoying being outside.
