Psalm 23:1, 4-6- “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want… Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness  and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. “

I am just in such a great place.  God has really blessed me.  This Thanksgiving, I had a chance to reflect on all the blessings I have in life.

First,  I have a WONDERFUL God who has given me so much. Like I have said in previous entries, I know that every gift is from God.  He has given me life.  He gave me His Son and now I have eternal life through Christ.  That alone is so much to be thankful for.

He has given me an absolutely incredible husband.   We are so perfect together.  We complement each other so well.  My husband is thoughtful, sweet, funny, good-looking, compassionate, passionate, caring, sensitive, strong, and just all around- the man of my dreams.  He has supported me in everything I do and has been an amazing daddy!!

He has given me wonderful children.  Every day, I wake up with overflowing love for my two precious daughters.  My 3 1/2 year old is so sweet and smart.  She’s got so much energy and always loves to run and laugh.  Yet, in the same moment will just come over and give me a kiss because she loves me.  My 19 mo. daughter is so expressive.  She is so smart.  She loves to be wherever her sister is.  She loves to be outside and play.  She makes the cutest faces and has the most amazing expressions.  She cracks everyone up.  She is sweet and lovable.

He has given me a wonderful family.  My parents have been so great.  They loved me and raised me to love the Lord.  They support me in everything I do and are there for me.  My sister and brother-in-laws are great.  I love my mother and father in laws and we get along great.

I have the best job in the world!  I am at home with my girls all day, and I dye yarn on the side.  I love the influence I get to have on my children.  And yet, I have a creative outlet.  I  have been blessed with amazing customers, who have been so sweet to me.  In fact, this colorway was inspired by a customer who wanted a custom done for her brother for Christmas.  I have wonderful partners and am so thankful that this has been working out so well.

I am thankful for my health, my house, my husband’s income and his job that he loves, for my car that runs, for the food on our table, for my education and for so much more.  You see, “my cup truly overflows”.  God has given me so much, and I am so thankful!!
