Living In Thanksgiving

Mike got creative in the milkhouse this morning to make me laugh, and I thought it made the perfect visual for where the Lord has us right now. We are drying our dairy girls up earlier than “our plan” because of reasons beyond our control…nature is like that. So we are thankful for each drop of milk He has blessed us with this season! 🙂

May we not become bitter for what we do not have, but remember that it is not “our will” that we want, but Yours, Lord. Keep us occupied with gladness of heart, because with You, WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED! Amen

This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God. They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart. (Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 NIV)
