Thankful Thursday!

This week has been another week filled with reminders of how much God takes care of us and loves us!

Each day I seem to find something else that fills me with wonder! For a time the stars did it for me. Since we got a dog I have been spending more time walking her as I tried to potty train her. I have spent more time under the stars amazed at their beauty and of how far away they seem. I can imagine heaven just beyond that point and my Heavenly Father looking down at me from there. How wonderful that feels!

This week I have been working and praying over my garden. I feel so much closer to Him when I play in the dirt. Just knowing that my start came from the same dirt makes me feel so happy. I feel so close to my maker this way! In the end we are only still alive because of the dirt. It made us, It grows our food, and it is always against our feet to remind us of our Lord!

From way up high to way down low, we have great reminders of the love God has for us, and not even that can help me know exactly how great his love really is. For him to give his only son Jesus to hang on a cross.....WOW! Do I love Him enough? No! I am working on that every day, but I know my love will never be much compared to His love for me! Amazing!
