Thanksgiving...so much to be thankful for!

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is here already! We have seen some exciting things happen in our business recently and are so Thankful for all that God has done for us! I think I am the most thankful this year though for our children. I always knew they were a blessing but after having a miscarriage that truth is SO MUCH MORE real to me. I am longing for another one as soon as God will grant me the privilege! Life can be very stressful when they are all little and you don't have house cleaning help or a child old enough to be of much help but it is a season that will only last for a short time. It is a tiny price to pay when you consider that you will have those children for the rest of your life to enjoy and keep up with even when they are grown! A lady from church let me borrow a book to remind me to stand on the truth and not forget the promises of God concerning childbirth. Shortly before the miscarriage occured Daniel and I got a table that would seat alot of children so anytime I am tempted to think about the miscarriage or be fearful I am going to say this verse outloud.
" Thy wife shall be a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table" Psalm 128:3 . I am especially reminded of this verse when I look at that table with all the empty seats! I am going to stand on that verse and believe God for every chair He has given us to be filled!
