Joan and Jesus take on the day!

I have a busy busy week... there are lots of prepared in advance activities to do.

Scripture that spoke to me today:

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
—Colossians 2:6-7

I need to be doing everything with a gratitude attitude.

Thankful today for a husband who loves me, and calls just to say hello when he has left for work.

Thankful for my almost 4 year old son who loves to hug!

Thankful for my other 3 kids, and how they have grown so big in such a short time!

Thankful for my job that allows me to work from home.

Thankful for the possible cold that I am getting now, instead of the end of the week so that I am not going to my mom's in Phoenix with a cold in the beginning stages.

Thankful for a miraculous healing of a friend in the hospital.

Thankful for food in my fridge, and the ability to cook said food.. because I am a person who likes to eat out to I need to cook for myself today.

Thankful that my car starts, its old, but it works!

Thankful for my girlfriends who always call me to touch base.

I am also thankful that I am overweight... and I need to learn dependence on God to loose said weight!

I am thinking very seriously about what my year looks like.. continuing the 365 days of worth.. and beyond with intentional prepared in advance things...

This is just where my heart is today.
Thanks for reading my thoughts!
