Thankful.....

I had to laugh when I ran across this picture tonight while updating Nick's website!
About three weeks ago, our two oldest sons came home from college for the summer! Of course, along with them came all of their dirty, sour, nasty laundry! This doesn't look like much.....but this was just the first of many, many mounds of wet, stinky socks, underwear, bedding, etc.!
For three days straight our washer and dryer ran practically 24/7! At the time, I was exhausted! (Thankful to have my big boys back home, yet overwhelmed at what they had dumped at my feet!)
Tonight, I sit on my couch thankful.....thankful that the laundry is all caught up! Thankful that my oldest boys have each completed another year of college! thankful that Nick is doing so well! But mostly thankful for a Father who allows me to literally "dump everything at His feet" year round and yet He never becomes exhausted!

Is. 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
