So, I think that all of you moms and dads out there who read this know what it is like to worship on Sundays once you have a child. Suddenly you don't hear nearly as much as you use to of the sermon (whether the child is asleep or not) and you just might as well forget about taking notes on everything. I, personally, live for the singing. Hannah is fascinated enough not to want or need much and I can actively participate and even put my heart into it. Don't get me wrong, we have not had to take Hannah out of worship very much. She is really not that hard to deal with right now but having her there still gets us distracted even though we don't have to take her out. I think you know what I am trying to say....

Anyway.... I got to actually look at a scripture on Sunday with the minister and I have been thinking of it ever since. I even got my Bible out at work today just to read it one more time. And since I am trying to keep gratitude as somewhat of a theme in my blog I just knew I had to share it.

I Corinthians 15:57-58 (NKJV)
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory though our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

I pray that I am thankful to God for the victory He has given me every day. And I pray that I am steadfast and immovable (wow!) and always abounding in the work of the Lord every day. Some days I am not sure I am.
