Grateful For My Brother

It’s Grateful Heart Friday and whew am I grateful for today! I’m looking back on this week and recalling all my blessings within it.
    I’m grateful that Chelsea once again nailed me to the wall in my 24/7 Family class (a parenting / discipleship class I take on Mondays at my church). I’m grateful for Al, Gretchie, Dana, and Vonda. I’m grateful that my brother has had business in LA all week and has blessed us all with his presence. I’m grateful that he came with me to The Foundry to hear me teach. I’m grateful that he has entertained my littles to no end. I’m grateful that I’m blessed to have a brother that I admire, love and am proud of. I’m grateful that my kids have an uncle that loves them to no end, makes them giggle, has the latest technology to wow them, and that makes time to play with them. I’m grateful that it is Friday and I get a fun evening out with two of my favorite ladies, Hillary and Gretchen, and that we are not escaping for the sake of running away! (as I talked about here).  But we are gathering to love on one another, point each other more towards Jesus, and perhaps share in a fabulous dining experience after a little pedi / mani!! Most of all I’m grateful for a God that welcomed me into his family and adopted me as His daughter. I’m grateful that His full inheritance is mine and that He offers me abundant life through Jesus.
     Now it’s your turn – take a few moments to reflect on all the blessings from this past week and cultivate your grateful heart! (Grab a Grateful Heart Button on the right and add it to your Grateful Heart post)
