Deuteronomy 28:2 (King James Version)

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God." This is my homeschooling blog. Some days my cup runnteh over with the joys of homeschoolong, some days it's spilling what can only be be described as thinly veiled insanity. Either way, it runneth over...

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for-
  • Pain.  Some days, I just have to make it my friend. I have to look right in its eyes and smile, because the JOY of the Lord is my strength and pain can not defeat me.
  • Family. They are all crazy, but they're mine, and I fit in here.  
  • Friends. Again, all crazy, but they make me smile.
  • Giant bars of chocolate. Not an extravagant gift, but I don't need extravagance.  I just LOVE to know someone was thinking of me and remembered something I like.
  • Team Epic.  We haven't even had a game and it doesn't matter.  These kids are EPIC to me. I can't even begin to say how much my spirit soars to watch them support each other. 
I am blessed beyond measure.  I haven't figured out if the joy comes from recognizing the beauty of the little things, or if having joy brings little things to bless to me.  I suppose it doesn't really matter since I intend to keep enjoying every little blessing the Father sees fit to give me.
