Thankful Thursday - 6-17-10

Today I have a few thankful thoughts.  I'll start with the short and move to the longer.

*VERY thankful for my sweet little angel baby Audrey Grace, who is 13 months today.  She's been starting to walk a lot more and is sleeping a lot better too.  YAY!!!!  We get 10 hours out of her almost every night now.  And she goes to bed with almost no fighting.

*Yesterday was my beautiful step-daughter's 14th birthday.  Fourteen!!!  WOW!!!!  I remember feeling old at 14.  That was the birthday my mom bought me my promise ring.  I cherished that birthday and still look back at it fondly.  At any rate, Kymberly is a wonderful child.  She is a great big sister.  She is a great girl.  She is loving.  She is sympathetic.  She is very caring.  She is very special and I love her very much.  I'm so happy to have her in my life.

*Lastly ... I'm thankful for our house.  The last 2 years have been a saga in the house.  But the house has been a huge blessing.  We have a great living room.  It's probably 20'x30' in size.  We have a drumset, 6 guitars, 2 desks, a couch, a TV, a bookcase, Audrey's toys, and a dresser.  And there's more room to play.  Two years ago when our landlord passed away, Josh and I kept saying that there's gotta be a reason God put us in the house.  I think God just told me why.  

I was convicted a couple weeks ago that we really need to be using our house for God.  Whether it's to host a youth group, to let people stay here when needed, or even something greater.  I think only 48 hours after I shared this with Josh, our worship leader emailed us and asked if we would be willing to open up our house and host a small, intimate Christian concert.  We didn't have to think about it ... our answer was yes.  So tomorrow night, Scott Phillips will be giving a small concert.  We are so excited.  We've spent the whole week getting ready.  We're also opening up a bedroom to Scott to stay on Friday night.

Less than 2 weeks after God told us to use our house for Him, we are a concert venue and a bed and breakfast.  What else does God have planned for us?????
