real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

being thankful on monday

Today I am thankful for:

The gift of music ~ This weekend we officially began listening to Christmas music. All kinds of Christmas music from the King’s College Choir to John Denver Christmas. And I love all of it. Truly, we listen to such a wide variety of music in our home that we never get tired of the wonderful gift that music is to us. Music had the ability to inspire us, comfort us, lead us in worship, and to fill our hearts with the joy of memories, especially during the holidays. Today I am thankful for music.

The gift of artistic expression ~ Since God is the first and best artist, we who are made in His image have been gifted with amazing abilities to express ourselves creatively. I love to see how this happens in such a variety of ways within families. We are blessed with musicians and artists in our home, children who reflect the image of their Creator in wonderful ways. Some of my most treasured possessions are things that have been made, or performed, by my artist children. And I know that not only is art what it is when it is being made but it becomes artistic expression repeatedly as it is taken in by the rest of us, blessing and inspiring us over and over again. Today I am thankful for the gift of art and creativity.
