and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Thankfulness – Day 6

I’m thankful for my daughter. She changed our world when she was born and has continued to do so every since. Her pathway in life always takes unexpected turns to unexpected places. Her many talents are noticed and appreciated by others. She is accomplished in many areas of her life, but especially as a daughter, wife, mother, and as a “child of the King”. She loves people and is always looking for ways to be of service to others. She loves God and tells others through words and deeds about how important it is to have Jesus in their lives.

Be blessed today.

Anna Lee
