Thankful Hearts

Psalm 71:17-19 ~

17 Since my youth, O God, you have taught me,
and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.

18 Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, O God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
your might to all who are to come.

19 Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God,
you who have done great things.
Who, O God, is like you?


This has been a week of amazing firsts, surprising news, and fun family times. There has been so much to be thankful for that I had to pick just a few.

Here is my list of things I want to praise the Lord for this week.

♫ A wonderful time with grandparents who we only get to see about once a year.

♫ A grandfather willing to spend hours playing Monopoly because his granddaughter wants to do it.

♫ Nathan had to take the same algebra Regents exam that Stephen did, even though he never had algebra. Isn't that dumb? All the special ed. students are required to do it, even though the administration knows there is no way for them to do well. Guess what? Nathan passed!!!! How awesome is that? In fact, one of the teacher's aides told me no student from that class has ever scored that well.

♫ Nathan is doing well at his new job.

♫ After eleven years of being highly allergic to dairy and eggs, we were able to cross it off the list this week. Emily is no longer allergic to those things and was able to enjoy her first ice cream cone yesterday. She is estatic!

♫ Wonderful family times.

Can you praise the Lord this week?
