When I have a house to clean, people to feed, wash to do, hair to cut, long list of folks to pray for.
When diapers need changing, someone needs bathing or feeding, medicine regulating/ordering/dosing… (all past duties…).
When there’s shopping to complete, then more shopping, returns, carpools, moving, packing, searching, wishing, planning, dreaming, hoping.
A confrontation, an ugly reflection, bills or a difficult person, a correct scale improvements to be made, …results delayed.
Waiting, successes and failings, disappointments, regrets, illness, sunshine and rain, dispair, repair, a new dress, PMS
Sore muscles, wakefulness, wrinkles, mold, warts…. teaching, changing, on vacation and at home, admiring, loving, playing, enjoying, prayers answered, a tender word.
This is when God has said to “Be Thankful” – IN everything (1Thess. 5:18), FOR everything (Eph. 5:20)
Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 AMP)
ForGlorySake! –thankfully– Anna
