“God says to give thanks in everything. That doesn’t mean you need to give thanks FOR everything. You don’t need to give thanks FOR that bad day. Or FOR that bad relationship. Or being passed over at work. Financial hardship. Whatever it is – you are not to give thanks FOR the difficulties, but rather IN the difficulties. That is a very important distinction, and one I think we often miss. Giving thanks IN everything shows a heart of faith that God is bigger than the difficulties and that He can use them, if you approach Him with the right heart and spirit, for your good and His glory.” -Tony Evans

Today, I am thankful for Nikola’s FIRST EVER school pictures. Oh my goodness!! He looks so adorable. My heart was bursting and my eyes were watering. He is growing up so quickly. I can’t believe he starts Kindergarten next year.

Today, I am thankful for stolen moments of quiet so that I can get some writing down. Quiet moments are rare with two little boys.

Today, I am thankful for stolen moments in my hallway listening to my boys play and use their imaginations together! I love the little games they play and their “conversations” and interactions.
