Wonder....Five minute Friday

Hop on over Here to get all the info about how to play along!

Here we go!

I am in awe of the many blessings You continue to pour out even in the midst of the muck we've dealt with lately.  Even when I don't know where to turn or if we'll ever figure out what's going on with Ari, whether she'll get better or whether she'll only have a short time here.  You show me daily the miracles all around me, and teach me how to appreciate the smallest of them.

I am so intrigued at how different each of our little's are, they have threads of being family woven through, but are truly each unique and individual.  Each bring something totally unique to our family dynamic.  I am filled with wonder watching their wonder at things too, loving their perspective and learning to look anew at things normally taken for granted.  

I am filled with wonder at the work You've done in my marriage, we are worlds away from where we were when we were first married and I am so grateful.  Helping each of us to grow closer to You and learn how to love the other more...helping us to "become one"...

I am amazed at how even when I take steps in faith and am so fearful You are there right beside me, leading me ever so gently and reminding me that You love me and my family more than I ever could.  Knowing You have everything under control and have a plan for each of us, even the smallest, is such a wonderful thing and I am so grateful that I can rest in that and know that in everything You can use it for your glory.

There, now it's your turn!  Leave me a link so I can come stop by too!

  2. sweet.
    Isn't it amazing how we begin to understand what blessing mean more and more with having more kids.
    maybe because it makes us appreciate God's parenting role in our lives and our role as children.
