Today I am grateful...

...for the blood of Jesus, which covers all of my sins, past, present and future.

...for these verses from Isaiah 26:
You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.

...for these three individuals:

...for rainy Saturdays and the promise of spring.

...for answered prayers.

...that my little guy is mostly spoon-feeding himself. (When he eats anything.)

...that my little girl is well on her way to being potty-trained! (In the liquid element, at least.)

...for pregnant friends and the joyful anticipation of meeting new babies.

...for in-laws not just bearable, but downright lovable! (Happy Birthday, Dad Wilcox!)

...that Easter is only two weeks from tomorrow!

...that I get to see my sister and her family over Easter week!

...for lettuce and tomatoes, the only ingredients required for a perfect salad. (I'm pretty sure I would die if I couldn't eat salad.)

...for the farm where I was raised and the grandparents who made that possible.

...that children require naps, and that older children can be taught to play relatively quietly in their rooms even when they've outgrown naps.

...for a husband a thousand times more wonderful than anyone I ever imagined in his place.

...for a church that I can't wait to get to tomorrow.

And so much more.
