Hey guys, happy Thursday! I'm seriously excited to be linking up today with Lori over at Frog's Lilypad for her Thankful Thursdays linkup.
I was sitting her this morning thinking about all that I'm thankful for and my mind was going into overload. My blessings are innumerable and I could fill pages and pages. I'm not even going to go on and on about them, but I am going to share one.
One of the things that has made it possible for us to stay on the field is our children. While they didn't have a choice in where we lived or what we did they did have a choice to accept the will of God for our lives and make good with the situation they were put in.
We pulled them away from everything and everyone they knew 15 years ago. They cried a little for Grandpa and missed Dr. Pepper but over all they were perfect missionary children. I can't imagine how hard life would have been here if our children had chosen to be unhappy. They never whined or complained about God's call on our lives and were never a stumbling block. I have heard stories about kids, older ones, crying daily to go home and I can't even imagine how hard that is on the parents. I'm so thankful that our three children never made it hard to serve God.
Now that we have to be so far from them they are still making the separation easy. They are such troopers and understand that the will of God for our lives is to be here and they never complain. They never complain about is missing special days or troubled times, they understand.
Today for Thankful Thursdays I'm thankful for children who allowed us to fulfill the will of God for our lives. Love and miss you Cody, Josh and Hannah!
