Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Hairbrush Story - Being Thankful - Inspirational Sunday

It is amazing to laugh and cry at the same time.

You will enjoy this story that I found over by Rosey. I've always heard of Beth and done some bible studies of hers and they are absolutely God filled.

This story is so simple and yet so powerful!

And today I want to be thankful: 

That our home wasn't flooded from those storms that came through with all that rain! There is water everywhere and I feel so sad for people whose homes are waterlogged. We just had some in our garage.

Thankful they caught that murderer who escaped close to our home

Thankful that despite how much I feel I'm failing as a mom, my children are happy and growing and learning at a mighty rate. I strive to be better.

That we can purchase groceries this week. 

And despite how alone I feel, I know someone loves me.
What are you thankful for? 

Who can you minister to today?

  1. What a story! And it does help to focus on being Thankful :)

  2. I just love, Love, LOVE this story!!!

    I'm thankful for so many things. I'm thankful that I know in my heart of hearts that you're not failing as a mom!!! Failure is an ugly word that doesn't belong anywhere near your wonderful relationship with your kids. You give them the gospel and that ALONE is reason to negate the failure word from your vocabulary (what a gift it is!).

    I'm thankful too, for all of my many blessings, my family's health and happiness being at the very top of the list.

    1. *hugs*
      Thank you Rosey.

      Such a struggle for me at times. Maybe I strive too much for what I didn't have.

  3. Colette, you are an awesome mother and person. Anyone who thirsts after Christ like you do is such a blessing to all who know her. I love your selected video. It was powerful.
