Happy Monday!! Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?! To say I am excited is an understatement! As we begin this week I want to introduce you to Morgan of A Treasure Hunt. If you haven’t visited her site yet- you MUST! You will love her heart, style, family, ‘realness,’ and stories. And I promise, you will LOVE her list of blessings below. :)
Hi everyone! My name is Morgan from A TREASURE HUNT and I am so thankful that Chloe invited me to share some insight on thankfulness as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday [where has 2013 gone?!].
I wanted to take a moment to just reflected quickly on what I am thankful for this year.
I am thankful for my husband. I am thankful he came up and talked to me over 3 years ago and thankful he chose me to be his wife.
I am thankful for the miracle I witnessed over a year ago when our son, William, was born.
I am thankful for my family. My sweet parents and brother and all of those who have come to recently joined my inner family.
Now what I am really thankful for day in and day out…
I am thankful for each day I am blessed with.
I am thankful for eyes that are able to see my son wake up each morning to the sweetest grin and wet kisses.
I am thankful for my hands that are able to reach out and hold him. Touch his baby soft skin and to hold his tiny hands as he grabs mine when he is walking.
I am thankful for a heart that is healthy and bursting with love for this tiny precious angel.
I am thankful for feet that allow me to run and mainly to play [and keep up with] my freshly walking little one.
I am thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.
I am thankful for my health, all of the blessings bestowed upon us, and to all of those that we hold so close to our hearts.
I wanted to leave you with something I am extremely thankful for each year.
I am thankful to the Lord for capturing my heart and pulling me in close. I am thankful for His unfailing forgiveness and blood shed at the cross. I am thankful for His word and how it is meant to guide our steps. I am thankful for when I really can let go and Let God. He has far better plans for our lives than we can ever imagine and if we just let Him take hold, is it amazing what will happen. When I finally let God control my life [like reaaaally let Him], I met my husband almost instantly. We were engaged three months later and married within a year of meeting. When I truly lifted my hands up and let the Lord bless me with a child in His timing, I got pregnant that month. It is really hard to let go of our own thoughts and wishes for our lives. Really hard, trust me I know! But when you are finally able to and really let the Lord lead each [I mean every single one] of your steps, you will be amazed by what He has in store. Trust me, I know first hand. Whenever I think back on why certain things did not work out how I had planned in my life, I always think to Garth Brook’s song, “Unanswered Prayers.” It reminds me that even though, at the time, I was praying and wishing with every inch of my being for my life to go one way [the way I wanted], those prayers went unanswered. Why? Because He had something far better up His sleeve. I encourage you to let go. Let God. Open your eyes and life to what He has in store for you. I know you will not be disappointed.
