The Lord tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. I'm trying, really I am. I am thankful for so many things but I'm trying to be thankful for this particular time in our lives. It's hard. I have never not been thankful for my home. We were married for a long time before we bought it and we lived in it as renters for many years before we bought it. We are the only people I know who would buy a house that they didn't like just so they didn't have to move. :-) But that's who we are. We had a fire 9 years ago and it was devastating and I clung to the thought that it was just things! No children were lost just things and 2 birds. We rebuilt and we were fine. I know this is kind of rambly but I'm trying to get my thoughts down. I am thankful for our home. 3 of our children were born here, one in this house. We have lived here so many years. Our roots are here. I know that none of this is a surprise to God, he has a plan and a purpose, I will follow and obey, but just so you know I don't like it. It's not a great week in our world but I'm going to hit post before I change my mind. This is where I'm at today. Tomorrow my parents coming and they are bringing one of our granddaughters and that will certainly lift our spirits. Peace.
