A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart.

I'm feeling so thankful.
This year has totally been a roller coaster, heck, today has been a roller coaster. I've had extremes emotionally from being sad about Miles, nervous to go back home and see his room still empty to true and pure thankfulness for the love, friends and family I have in my life.

Right now I want to dwell on the thankfulness. God has been so faithful to show me that I'm not alone. He's used so many people to pour out their love and support on me. I don't have Miles anymore (on earth). That's true. It's also true that I DO have so much to be thankful for.

The Lord has been so faithful to me. He's helping me through this process, and He has put me on lots of people's heart that has made this time sweet.

I don't know how someone loses a child without The Comforter. Although I'm terribly sad I still have peace about where Miles is at. I know he's not in pain. I know that Jesus is taking care of him. I know that I will be with him again one day in Heaven. I know that my life isn't over. I know that God still has a plan for our family!

What are you thankful for these days?

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

an attitude of gratitude every single day, even the cloudy days, is the only way to find joy and peace.

i am thankful that God is blessing you in your sorrow and that He is using other to minister to you and your family.

praying for you and your family as you adjust together.
