Just spent the afternoon doing something I wanted to for months. I printed out tons of pictures this summer of memories from the past two years, as an application for the lesson in thankfulness the Lord had been teaching me. I wanted to create a wall in my house where I could look back on two years that often seem filled with disappointment, uncertainty and sometimes despair. While those years have held all those things, they have also held wonder, delight and some precious memories I am so thankful I have. I hesitated to put it up because sometimes I am lazy, and also because thankfulness can be hard. Yet in an attempt to not let the Eve inside of me win, I want to see the abundant garden God has graciously given me and not get stuck on the one thing He hasn't. Thank you Lord for my garden, sometimes I only see the wilderness.

I have been wondering how to "look back" and now I know that would be a wonderful way to remember the past couple of years for our family also...Thank you
