I’ve noticed a lot of posts about thankfulness this month. Apropos with Thanksgiving less than two weeks away.
Today I’m thankful for June. For a house that sold after two excruciating years on a dismal market.
That saga nearly killed us. I’m thankful that by Grace it didn’t. May we remember the hard lessons learned.
I’m thankful for June when we left town on a road trip across these beautiful United States.
For our precious realtor and friend who handled the unexpected sale of our house and quickly secured another place for us to rent. I’m thankful for the blessing of a wise advisor.
June was only the beginning. It was then we first learned my husband’s employer was being acquired. I’m thankful for his job with the new company.
A new job in a new city. Where just last week, another savvy realtor helped us find another house in a mere 48 hours. One that wasn’t even on the market yet.
I’m thankful for Papa Bear who graciously gave up acreage to preserve unity with Momma Bear. May Papa Bear find joy in the negotiated concession of a healthy landscape budget.
May he go forth shopping trees, shrubs, and all good things that grow in the ground.
May our backyard be filled with the Cub’s small practice field and a slice of botanical garden, both sweeter than honeysuckle vine.
I’m thankful for nearly move-in ready.
Besides the minor detail of totally uprooting our lives, all that’s left is picking paint colors. A job I’m thankful to add to my to-dos.
Only been in the house three times. Less than an hour cumulatively. By Faith I traverse the waters of Sherwin-Williams.
We move in five weeks. Not a schedule for the faint of heart. Who knows what will happen tomorrow?
Not to worry. I’m thankful God’s strength is perfect. As is His timing.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful… Hebrews 12:28 NIV
What are you thankful for today?
I’d be so thankful if you would share.
Happy Veterans Day!
Today I’m also thankful for the brave men and women who’ve served in the United States military. Thank you Dad, Uncle Jon, Uncle Bill, Michael B., Joe G., Jeremy N., Cordel H., Eric B., Jeff W., Uncle O., John M., Jeff S., and the many more too numerous to name here. Freedom is not free.
