My son Mason is nearly 5 months old. He usually sleeps through the night, but for the last couple of days he has been waking up (sometimes twice at night). This has been quite difficult, as I have 3 other children ages 4 and under to care for during the day. Mommy needs her rest. The 2nd time he woke up last night, I really struggled to get out of bed. Finally, I thought, “Eucharisteo preceeds the miracle!” As I thanked God for my precious son I jumped out of bed with energy and entered his room. I put my babe to my breast and watched him as God provided his nourishment through me. What an awesome God. As time drifted, I began to meditate on Scripture and review Ps. 19 and Col. 1:1-3. It was such a blessing to think on God’s Word as I sat with my little guy. Eucharisteo preceeds the miracle.
I'm keeping a list in a journal of gifts...not gifts that I want, but gifts that I have. Seeing God in my day is making me joyful...it's changing my perspective. it's drawing me to the Lord. Here are a few other gifts:
1. Seeing Rae in a bathing suit over her pants.
6. Watching Macky Boy party like it's 1999 after he potties.
9. Listening to Halley telling Rae and Macky Boy a story about God.
10. Mason's toothless grin.
25. Eddie cooking dinner.
41. Smooth writing pens.
48. Quiet time while 3/4 of my brood slleps.
50. 1 Peter 1
Won't you join me in counting your gifts? What are you thankful for?
