Thankful Thursday

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

The first verse was my "theme verse" for my pregnancy with Henry--seems appropriate for this week too.

Thanks, Lord, that we can trust you to be there when we don't understand.
Thanks for straightening our paths, especially when we get all turned around.
Thanks that we can trust you 100%, with ALL our heart.
Thanks that when we acknowledge You, you show up in great ways.

Thanks for being with Kim and Callie this week. Thanks for bringing Dave and Kim together through this ordeal, and for providing caring and competent medical attention (if not completely timing). Thanks that Kim is able to give thanks in the midst of this trial. We pray for complete and quick healing for Callie, and endurance for Kim, Dave and Noah this week.

Thanks for watching over pregant moms--for the safe arrival of Ava and for not bringing Jen's baby here yet (he needs to cook a few more weeks!). Thanks for an uncomplicated pregnancy for me, including no ulcerative colitis (it was miserable with Harmony)--hard to believe I'm 23 weeks! We pray for the safe arrival of Baby Ranvestel...soon!

Thanks for spontaneous travel plans, cooked sushi, laughter from the back seat, Priceline, and fun family times. Bless this trip and our time together.

Thanks that you hear our praises, and enjoy them. Thanks for Iris hosting Thankful Thursdays, so that we can share them, and each other's burdens.
