Homemaking Link Up!!

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?
