Susan,
Great reminder for all of us, especially those of us that saved the "best" for last and waited to do taxes. Ha! Loved the picture, too, but you owe him big for posting this one!

Happy word-filled wednesday! It is so hard to remember to give thanks in everything, good OR bad!! Thank you for the reminder.

ellen b said...

Oh dear. Now that is a reality illustration! It does say to give thanks in EVERYTHING. Hard but true...

twinklemom said...

Amen!

Oh dear Jordan!

This reminds me so much of "31 Days of Praise" by Ruth Meyers who reminds us that even in the hardest of circumstances, to give praise to God for He is gracious and kind and He is there for us through everything and we are never alone.

Melanie said...

Oh, poor Jordan... he doesn't look happy! However, the verse you put with it is such a great reminder. A reminder that even when we're not pleased with how things are going at that exact moment -- we still have many blessings for which to be thankful!

Amy said...

See This is why we take those great pictures. This will encourage someone today and he will be blessed by it.

Lynn said...

Did he just have the test?! Praying so for good answers!
There's a new cell phone ad on TV and the young man on there reminds me of Jordan! I think about him every time I see the commercial.
Praying so that all's well there!

Thanks for the sweet comment, Susan. I am on the mend, I think. The game, unfortunately, was not a winner for our church team. But it is always about fellowship, right?

BTW, I found your expanation of the Stephanie song in my spam folder this week. I loved your story!! That is amazing that it affected you AND your sister. I will have to hunt for this powerful song!

Are you feeling better? TMJ can be so difficult!
Love ya,
Stephanie

P.S. I just noticed that I signed this post earlier under my blog alias, Alexzillasmama. Oops!
