Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Thankfulness {Gratituesday}

Thankfulness {Gratituesday}

God has blessed me with a beautiful baby girl.  I love her.  I like trying to read to her, though she often has other plans-moving, walking, running, trying to get into the toilet, etc.  I like cuddling with her and holding her, walking with her, carrying her, knitting for her, and attempting to sew for her.  Most of all, I am thankful that God entrusted her into our care; I enjoy teaching her about God, singing His Psalms and praying with her.  Sometimes, I don't want to see her grow up, but at the same time, I look forward to seeing what she'll do in life. It's bittersweet.
May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace; may our granaries be full, providing all kinds of produce; may our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; may our cattle be heavy with young, suffering no mishap or failure in bearing; may there be no cry of distress in our streets! Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD! Psalm 144:12-15



I'm also thankful that I came across a consignment store-Greenberries-in Columbia, MD, and they sell Thirsties products, including Thirsties duo wraps!!!  I did not know of any stores in the area that sold cloth diapers in an actual store.  It's less than a 30 minute drive to Greenberries for me.  Now, if only I can find the Thirsties cover we actually have right now, then I'd be happy.

In other news, can you please pray for Drew's Grandpa?  
We were informed tonight that he might not make it through the night.  
Pray especially for his salvation.

    Blessings to you and yours, ~Lisa

  2. So sad to hear about Grandpa - prayers for your family. I always enjoying your words of gratitude. It's always great to find a cloth diaper store. We have sadly put ours in storage as our bean has become potty trained.

  3. Such a cute little mini-Sarah :) Don't worry, it won't be much longer now before she begs for more and more books all day long.

    Praying for Drew's grandpa.
