It’s Wednesday and you know what that means? YES!! A Homemaking Link Up!
Today I want to encourage you to join me in giving thanks to the Lord in the everyday things of life. I have recently read Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts and was convicted that I do not offer up enough thanks! But in starting I can make headway in living fully right where I am.
In the middle of my cluttered home, with an Arrow in training, attempting to get my fledgling soap business “suds-ing along”, trying to garden when the Lord saw fit to make this year another quite cool spring, and cool summer, and I could go on and on.
Lately, I have been feeling far from the Lord and as though I am spinning my wheels. I ‘know’ in my head that the Lord has not left me. He states that clearly in His word. So that must mean that I have wandered away. Again.
I let far too many things distract me from the thanks and joy in the small everyday things. And when I have wandered I do not react to those distractions well. I have started to yell again. Oh how I hate it when I yell. It’s so… belittling and shows a lack of self-control.
So after reading Ann’s book I have determined to start my own list of one thousand gifts. I want to be a part of a revolution of thankfulness to God. Join me won’t you?
