Count your blessings…

“As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned”, said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him”.  John 9:1-3

This verse brings me to tears. It was shared with me (thanks Amy!!!!) awhiles back and it brings me great comfort. I shared about my son Tucker and his vision impairment back in February. You can read about it here .  At the moment his glaucoma is remaining steady which is a blessing in itself!! His doctor has been preparing me for what happens when the meds stop working and…well… I dont even wanna go there right now. Its best to cast all our worries on God .  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ. Jesus. ” Phillippians 4:6-7

This year has been harsh on my family with physical ailments. But… Im learning that God lets things happen so that we may become strong and learn to lean on him.

 

When I look at my blessings for this year I realize just how much God has blessed me.  It has truly been a wonderful year!! If I just ponder on the bad I would miss all the amazing, beautiful and lovely things God has done for me. 

We started a new adventure this august. Im homeschooling my older 2 kids and what a true blessing that has been! I had so many doubts and fears but we are doing awesome and I LOVE it! I’v felt God leading us to this decision for awhile. Its not easy and I often say that the hardest part about it is having a little one running around/getting into things while were trying to school.

My oldest Tucker was able to see several new states when we took a quick trip to Maine at the end of August.

I LOVE being able to teach my children life skills. They love helping me in the kitchen and its wonderful having them here with me:)

Wishing your and yours a very happy New Year! How has God blessed you in 2015?!!!
