Thankful this weekend

I am thankful for so many things this weekend. To start off with, I am thankful for my husband. Yesterday, he watched the kids while I locked myself in the office and scrapbooked, exercised, and relaxed. That was so nice. I definitely needed it.
Second, I am thankful for my wonderful kids. A woman from my MOPS group lost her dear, sweet child this week to cancer. We have been praying for him and his family, but Jesus chose to take him. The following weeks are going to be so hard for them and I pray that God lifts them up these next days. He was such a sweet boy. I don't know why God chose him, but He did. My kids are healthy and I feel so lucky and blessed.

Third, I am thankful for our new church. We did not go last week and I was feeling a little down. But, things were back to normal this week and I think all of the praying I did last week helped. I hate when God starts feeling far away, but I know that I am pushing Him away, not Him.
We had a wonderful, Fall weekend. We made soup last night and lit the fire. That was nice!
MMM, chocolate mint truffle coffee:

It is hard sometimes to understand why God allows things to happen. It is hard for us to see the plan He has. I could not imagine the associated with losing a child. I know what ever I imagine it would be far far worse.

It is good when we get back into the presence of God isn't it? I know when I tend to stray from Him, my world starts to get chaotic.

And to wrap things up, I just to say how much I enjoy your blog.
