Thankful Thursday

Today, I'm thankful—immensely thankful—for help.

That small, one-syllable word embodies the human & the divine all in one. That word can change the world; I know it's changed mine.

Whether giving help or receiving help, a glowing grace usually accompanies the exchange. That grace must be why doing good feels good, as if your skin is radiating with compassion or gratitude, depending on whether you are the giver or the recipient.

The best is when help comes from unexpected people & places, like a holy ambush. Thank you people. Thank you places.

What are you thankful for today?

Today we are humbled and thankful for a check from a well-known, wealthy family foundation here in Michigan. They surprised us with a note of their love for this ministry and the article about Kyrie and her gift and also a check for a large sum of money that we would never even have imagined! Go, God, Go! and Go, Kyrie, Go!

Wow, praise God! Isn't it just awesome to know that He is working right along with us, every step of the way?!

Today I'm thankful for my sister and all of the experiences we have shared together.

I'm thankful for the inspiration I've received this week from 2 little girls in Iowa and from the wonderful people in Michigan who started Kyrie's Gift. This blog has really touched my heart over the last 6 months - I see God's goodness in action. All because of one little girl's life - Go, Kyrie, Go!!
