Lately God has been teaching me all about the joy that comes from giving thanks in every circumstance. And in the spirit of testing out what is being learned yesterday was a hard day to give thanks. Movers didn’t show up my grandparents house was left unpacked and the day was full of question marks and frustration. But in the midst of all this there was still reason for thanks. I ate lemon bars from my favorite bakery watched little lizards outside and was afforded extra time to play board games and talk with grandparents I love. Mostly I am thankful for a God who wasn’t surprised by yesterday’s holdups who works everything for good who teaches me to have a Philippians 4 heart in every circumstance.
