Thankfulness and Trust

"Thankfulness and trust are your primary receptors." 
(Jesus Calling)

Taking steps into this New Year, one day at a time, with thankfulness and trust. How can it be the third week of 2013 already? I've been busy with organizing things after the busy holiday season, setting up things for the New Year, and taking part in family and ministry happenings. And being reminded to first of all, put on thankfulness and trust. Each day. For God is the One who is in control of our moments and our days, and all that this New Year will bring.

Thanking Him for His gifts this past week ...

A special meal out on Monday with youngest son (now 22) - a gift to spend this time with him, just mother and son - before he leaves for three months on a fish processing boat job.
Good food at Smashburgers - love their sweet potato fries.
Shopping together for some needs before the trip.

On Tuesday - special time together with sweet little Eva while her mommy had a bday party for four-year-old Cruz and friends at Chick-Fil-A.
Such a sweetheart - love our little grandbaby.

Our first Staff Meeting of the new calendar year on Wednesday - catching up on all that happened taking students to the Denver Christmas Conference for the first time.
Hearing of life change, especially in one student's life - amazing answer to prayer.
Enjoying Papa Murphy's Chicago Style Stuffed Pizza as we met.

Posting my first "mothering" post on Thursday - in a new weekly series: "Forever Close: The Heart of a Mother" - something I've been dreaming of for a few years.

A very fun birthday party on Friday for grandson, Cruz - Happy 4th Birthday, Cruz!
Another amazing bday cake, made by his mom and dad.
Sweet time with family.
Delicious meal of barbecue pork and sides.
Grandson Cruz - such a fun, adventurous, creative little boy.

Thankful for Instagram photos to help share the story of a week!

And trusting Him for all that this new week will bring ...

"Now all glory to God, who is able, 
through His mighty power at work within us 
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or imagine."  
(Eph. 3:20)
