Grateful Heart: link-up

I have been waiting for this link up since Friday. Sometimes I let my heart get dark and jagged, and when I finally realize what’s happened it’s too late- I’ve already pricked someone.

Yesterday we celebrated Jesus’ resurrection. He died for our sins. My sins. Sins like my prickly heart. And for that I am so grateful.

I am also trying to change. Laugh more, get angry less. Forgive more, envy less.


This weekend I have been especially grateful for:

– my brother, who has the most forgiving heart

– my mother-in-law, who always tries to make things a little easier for my husband and me

– my husband, who accepts me on my good days and bad days

– my dogs, who shower me with endless love and adoration

– my God, who is forgiving and merciful and listens to my prayers and pleas

Starting this week with a clean and happy heart, and praying to end the week the same way 🙂

  1. “Starting this week with a clean and happy heart, and praying to end the week the same way” – me too, lady 🙂 Thank you for sharing that verse… it’s one that’s been on my heart for a few weeks now and seeing it again but this time on here reminds me that God REALLY wants me to get it 😉 I hope tomorrow feels as happy as today!

      Thanks, Emily! 🙂 It’s a little weird to tell myself to “be happy” or “stay positive” but it really is changing the way I go about everyday tasks. There’s also been a lot of prayers to keep my heart (and my husband’s!) happy & joyful! 🙂


  2. for some reason what’s really sticking out for me is acknowledging that your mother-in-law tries to make things easier for you. i am grateful that i also have parents and in-laws that do this but i never thought of it in those terms and they totally do. thanks for that 🙂

      I am horrible at asking for help and accepting help, but this Easter I put that aside and things went SO SMOOTHLY! I rarely realize how many people are “on my side.” Glad I could help you see it, too! 🙂
