Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to
say your nightly prayer.
This week I am Thankful For:
....Let it be noted with Merge Camp this past weekend, I could literally have a whole list that could take days to get through... so I'll try & keep it simple & say I am thankful for every minute spent with these amazing kids.
... I'm glad the kids were together away at camp during the weekend. Some things were happening in our church during the weekend & these precious kids were away from it all having no idea what was going on. God's protection is amazing.
... that I have the opportunity to have a voice that may help others in their decision about Jesus.
|The many faces of me teaching|
... this girl. I just love this sweet face. It seems that every year when kids come in, all the leaders just connect with different people. This young lady is my buddy. She's always just randomly yelling out, "TEAM REBECCA"... She's funny, loves superheroes, books, is kind & helpful... I love getting to know amazing young people!
... my husband who made sure to bring me a cold Sparkling Water & a subway sandwich to camp.
... that I have no shame in taping a aluminum moustache to my face for a youth kiddo's scavenger hunt picture
|I actually have it taped to my face with the tape going down my lip inside my mouth|
... that baby hurt ripping off...
... the bravery in others who aren't afraid to stand up against what is wrong, even when others don't see or believe it. It takes a lot to stand up against things. Especially when things are deceitful to others. It makes that person an outsider in an unjust way... but they are willing to do it for what's right. What an example of character.
... The Grands started school back. So glad they had a great, safe summer!
|How are these boys getting so big so fast!?!?!?!|
... Harvey Dent & the way he depends on me & Ricky. He's totally a member of our family.
... truth & how it always seems to come to light.
... sweet friends that give me such wise Godly advice & reminders of things I easily forget because I keep my heart too much on my sleeve.
... Getting lots of hugs & kisses from this sweet face. It's been so fun seeing Emerson's personality grow as she does. I just love this little Princess so much.
What are you thankful for this week?
