There are so many things I am grateful for. But grateful is more than I how I feel about the things I have or the blessings in my life.

Grateful is a heart posture that I am learning to live by.

In the hard times I am grateful for the faithfulness of my Heavenly Father who is always there for me and sees my pain.

On the hard days, I am grateful for the roof over my head.

On the days that we are struggling to get homework done, I am grateful for the education that my son is receiving.

On the cold winter days that seem never-ending, I am grateful that spring always follows.

On the days I miss my husband, I am grateful for the memories.

On the days I get caught up in guilt and shame, I am grateful for His Son who took what I deserve.

I am grateful that no matter what the world throws my way, I know that my future is secure.

I am grateful that no matter how I feel about myself or perceive the world to see me, I am loved by the Creator of the universe and that is enough.

Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
