  1. So true! When we teach the 10 commandments to our 3-4th graders, we teach the 3 Rs of the 4 the commandment. Remember the Sabbath Day & keep it holy. God knew us well that we need rest. He commanded we spend 1/7th of our days Resting, Remembering His work in & through us & being Refreshed (grateful) in all His provisions. Thank you for sharing! I’m going to try to look for the gratitude points thru my day instead of whine about the interruptions & mountain still on my desk! Bless you richly!

  2. Thank you Grace. I love the words you used to close your post…..

    “I’m thankful for the depth yet simplicity of living out our faith and for Jesus who walked the way ahead of us. I’m thankful that we are being constantly broken and reshaped into the mold of Christ. All is grace in Him, and all thanks be to Him.”


  3. I am so there with you! Thank you for the reminder to be grateful for the kids who I love to pieces but also sometimes drive me bonkers. You could have been writing a page out of our story! Grateful for second chances and grace. I have to receive grace so I can pass it on to my kids.

  4. You’ve got me thinking, Grace, about those times when gratitude is difficult to muster, and nothing seems worthy of thankfulness. We can ask God to help us see the blessings around us and bring our attitude back in check. I think that’s a prayer he’d be delighted to answer!

  5. Oh wow, your post came at a time when I needed this reminder, to be grateful, patient, and kind with my kids and myself. We’re all children, learning, and growing together. Thank you for your thoughtful and calming reminder.

  6. Grace,

    I’m thankful for second chances from God. Many times when tired or stressed out I complain & bemoan like a little child. Later though I ask forgiveness for where & when I messed up that day. Try to always think with a gratitude mind. Sometimes it looks like me making a thankful journal. It can contain up to 200+ items from home in Heaven, Jesus dying for my sins, house, food, job to simple things like nice weather, & even paper clips. It seems to ground me.

    Blessings 🙂
