A Month of Thanks: Day 20

Psalm 7:17 "I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High."

1. I am thankful for the spontaneous, romantic birthday present that Wayne gave me last year...a weekend trip to Niagra Falls. God's timing was perfect!! We were able to spend some special time alone without the kids. Just 3 months later, Wayne had his seizure and our crazy journey started. So thankful for these fun memories with my man. I'm also thankful for Courtney, who babysat our kids so that we could escape.

I asked Wayne to take a video of the falls for the girls since we had just learned about them for school (the teacher never rests). At the end, he got all romantic on me...but it makes me smile. 

2. I'm thankful for verses like Ecclesiastes 7:2 "It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart." I love this verse because it is a great reminder to us about what is important. Yesterday, the girls and I attended a wake for a friend's dad. Anytime I go to a funeral or a wake, it is a gentle reminder to me about how fragile and short life is here on earth. As the verse says, we should take this to heart. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow! So thankful for reminders like this from God's Word.

Wayne is feeling well enough to travel for work. He has been in North Carolina the past two days on a business trip. So thankful that he is feeling good enough to travel. I'll be thankful when he is home!
