I am so thankful for Jase's safe return and for this hug and the love between us.
I am so thankful for the interactions
Jase is able to have with people.

I am so thankful for
the promise of
our future in God's kingdom,
if we have prayed
and invited Jesus Christ
into our hearts.
I am so thankful
that God
has forgiven
my sins.
I am so thankful for all Jase learned about diverse cultures and intentional living, and what he is teaching us.
Today, I am so thankful that I can
"trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding;
in all my ways, I am acknowledging Him,
and He is making my paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
I am trusting God to fulfill His promises for my life for Him.

What are you thankful for today? Join us in sharing our thankfulness this week by visiting and linking up with our hostess for the month of July-Lynn at "Spiritually Unequal Marriage" and our host, Greg at Greg's General Store.

  4. Great post!! After stumbling on your blog last night, I couldn't wait to get back and find pictures of your son's mission trip as you'd mentioned...however, I'm so glad that God is all-knowing and has a sense of humor, bc I was surprised to see the first sentence with the name of your son being Jase...I'd been praying over "Josh's" safe return, teehee! Sorry I'd "miswritten" in my first comment to you!

    So glad he's home safe and grew closer to the Lord in the process of ministering to others :)

  5. K...still getting to know your family thru pictures...well, I guess both your sons were prayed over, since Jase was the one on mission trip and Josh is your older one! I'll get it down soon enough :)

  6. Such an amazing thankful post.

  7. Yay!!! So glad Jase made it home and you got to hug him!!! I know how wonderful that is!! I remember the first time one of my kids came home from a mission trip, the tears, the stories, all the things we learned from them!!
