Practicing Gratitude 9.19.16

- Essie snapping a quick pic ~ even with a highway setting the Texas sunset is gorgeous

- Prov 14:10 - Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy ~ why it’s so critical to be in the Word, to have God’s rich encouragement indwelling inside of us ~ because really others aren’t going to share our sorrows or our joys, the deep stuff comes from God alone

- Getting to see Pilar, love her so much

- Essie and Ava doing WW together - knocked it out early, what a relief

- Another great football week with SCS and BU in the W column
Coach Flowers is just awesome
Bran #3
- My out-of-control allergies (!!!!!) - truly practicing gratitude!

- Getting to see Ward, made Bran so happy

- Some margin over the weekend ~ which turned out great since I felt so crummy

- Wamstads taking Essie to the TCU game, a treat!

- Prov 19:11 - A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense ~ oh my gosh as we sat in the kitchen late last night, and I complained to Corbin and the boys about a rude FB comment and then a rude teenager... can I just learn to keep my mouth shut? But here is my encouragement ~ written two centuries ago ~ that it's possible and profitable to overlook an offense

- Prov 14:13 - Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief  - so true that it's all mixed in. heartache and joy all swirling together this side of Heaven, and the Lord knows

- Daboo's hamburger stroganoff - always a favorite

- Fall is here in the Wilson backyard ~ Hud's willingness to skim the pool... again

- These sweet girls! (thanks, Betsy!)

- 7th grade football game ~ cute girls cheering them on

- A phone call from the principal ~ so sweet of our choir teacher and administrators to call home with GOOD news

 - Weekend vb tourney
2nd place (and a close game at that!)
Proud Daddy ~ mostly just from watching her enjoy this sport
Daboo is a loyal fan, only one to make the early game (!)
 - Bran actually made it to SCS Homecoming ~ our plans kept shifting, and sweet Ashlyn filled in last minute, love this girl
And thank you, Jennifer ~ so sweet to get a pic of Bran for me
- Such a sweet group! Thanks, Anne, for a special day for all of our girls

- Watching this kid play baseball ~ and how excited he was for the game

 - He did it! Hud asking Sadie to PHS Homecoming

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles...   1 Chronicles 16:11-12
