When I have a house to clean, people to feed, wash to do, hair to cut, long list of folks to pray for.
When diapers need changing, someone needs bathing or feeding, medicine regulating/ordering/dosing.
When there’s shopping to complete, then more shopping, returns, carpools, moving, packing, searching, wishing, planning, dreaming, hoping.
With a confrontation, an ugly attitude, bills or a difficult person, an accurate weight, improvements to be made, …results delayed.
While waiting for successes and failings, disappointments, regrets, illness, sunshine and rain, dispair, repair, a new dress, PMS
For sore muscles, wakefulness, wrinkles, mold, warts…. teaching, changing, vacation, a home,
In admiring, loving, playing, enjoying, prayers answered, a tender word.
This is when God said to be thankful IN everything (1 Thessalonians 5:18)… and FOR everything (Ephesians 5:20)
Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
