Thankful Thursday

Let us serve the world soulfully. The pay we will receive for our service will be in the currency of gratitude. God's gratitude.
~Sri Chinmoy

~A new deck - Neighbors who donated the wood, a hubby who worked hard to finish it in less than a week and for Craig & Justin spending their Saturday here to help Jason finish!  (Also thankful for Leslie and Courtney who shared their hubbies for the day with us!) It is awesome!

~Springtime weather - playing outside everyday, coffee on the new deck, riding bikes, just enjoying the beauty of creation.

~Sibling bond- Alayna is addicted to her brother!  She can't hug him enough (sometimes it is too much for him though =)! ) She is so happy to chase him everywhere.  But, at the end of the day watching them play in the bath, snuggle in his bed for story time and prayers is simply the best!

Alayna decided hmm this reading this is ok, I can do it myself
~The amazing support for our fundraiser on May 14th.  And the blessing of Kelly, Heather & Bruce who are making it happen. Stuff is streaming in for the silent auction and many people have told us they are golfing with us!  WOO HOO!

~Alayna was sight reading mommy, daddy, Aidan, and Alayna this week.

~Even though we don't have an immigration officer yet (keep praying) they have been very kind to answer my questions each time I call.  We have had our representative and senator contact them to see if we can get expedited to no avail!  But, I still know God is in the details (thanks Jan!) and his timing is perfect!

~Finally, very thankful for an hour and a half of quiet prayer time I enjoyed at our church, no kids, no phones, no computer...just a little acoustic guitar, my Bible and solitude.  Awesome!

What are you thankful for?  Please share, I love to read them.

Sweet, sweet pictures of your children. You are right, the sibling bond is a wonderful thing. And soon, Dariya will be part of it too!

I wonder why you don't have an officer? That is so weird! Praying they get you one soon.
I'm thankful daddy comes home tonight and will be here for Carters first super league games Saturday!

SO thankful God has shown us the path to take to our little girl...I talk about it in my most recent blog post. But...short story is, be careful what you pray for:) When God moves...He MOVES!
