Last night I was watching Dog the Bounty Hunter and in that episode, Dog and the team were going after a couple. It turns out that they were both meth addicts, the man was a thief to support their habit, the woman was a prostitute, and the woman had abandoned her four children a year ago to "go on a one week vacation." I cried.
I am not normally this emotional, but being pregnant I am pretty emotional. When Beth was taking the woman to jail she let her call her mom and kids. I really started crying when this lady got on the phone with her daughter and told her that she didn't know where she was going because "Mommy's not driving."
I guess that the point of me telling you this story is that I am thankful for everything that God has done to bring me to where I am today, because with out Him, there is no telling where I could be. I am thankful that my husband is a man who loves the Lord and wants our children to grow up knowing Him and His love for them. Emily, my 3 YO, knows about ten Bible verses and that God loves her and Jesus will wash away her sins. I am so thankful that she has a heart for God, she loves learning more and hearing more Bible stories.
Second chances, even third and forth when they are needed, are another thing that I am thankful for. God is so good! I hope to be able to live my life always knowing where I am going (in the end) because God is driving, and I trust Him!!!
I hope that you all have a blessed week, and I encourage each of you to take a few minutes and think of what you are thankful for today.
