I woke up at 3:30 this morning and for some reason could not get back to sleep.....After tossing and turning for a little while, I decided I'd go ahead and get up. I did my daily devotional.....By the time I finished it was 5:00.....I went into each of my children's bedrooms and began thanking God for the peacefulness in our home. I took time to watch my son smile in his sleep and my dog sigh as I walked past his bed. I took time to notice a picture one of my children drew of a cross they said Jesus died on so that we may live......I got each child's clothes out and laid them at the foot of their bed.....By now, I'm sobbing because I'm just so thankful for all the many things I unconsciously take for granted......But because this is a day that my God made - I am purposing myself to rejoice and to be glad in it.
