I'm sitting this morning thinking through all the events of yesterday, Easter Sunday, with such a grateful heart! I'm so thankful for our Risen Savior, who gave His everything for me. One of the songs we sang yesterday with our Harbortown kids was "Remember" - I'll remember You - remembering the price You paid, remembering the cross, remembering the empty tomb - I'll remember You. Even this morning, it brings tears.
I'm thankful for our girls! As I looked at them in their "Easter best" - which, for our family, meant their volunteer t-shirts - my heart overflowed. They chose to spend their Easter Sunday serving others through 3 services and 3 Easter egg hunts - love their hearts!
I'm thankful for my incredible husband, who "gets it" when I'm tired and is patient even when that tiredness results in grumpiness. Instead of complaining, he grills steak and takes us to TCBY!
I'm thankful for the amazing people I have the privilege of serving with each Sunday in our Children's Ministry - what an inspiring, encouraging and fun group of people - love them!
I'm thankful for the two sweet little ones that are waiting for us on the other side of the ocean. I'm thankful for the little glimpses we have of them and their personalities through pictures and video. I can't wait to be their mommy - I can't wait to celebrate next Easter with them!
I'm so thankful for all that God has taught and continues to teach our family through this adoption journey. It isn't easy, but we have seen God's hand in undeniable ways - we all have grown and I wouldn't trade that for anything!
This morning, all I can say is "thank you Jesus". My cup overflows!
