we give thanks.

We may be celebrating another Thanksgiving in a hospital but we are still so full of thankfulness! 
We know the Lord has blessed us above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We know we have amazing family and friends in our lives.
We know how each day truly is a gift that we're given to live.
We're also very aware of what our life holds and the daily struggles that are like flashing neon lights;  a constant reminder of how different our life is now...

I'm reminded of 1 Thessalonians 5:18 which says to be thankful in all circumstances. 

It's a tough one to swallow sometimes. And I'm thankful that because of Christ, it's possible.

As for our day...

we spent it together which was wonderful! We were able to Face Time with family, play games and watch movies. We also went to the cafeteria for lunch. They did an awesome job of creating a special time! There was a ton of food and a chocolate fountain! Yum!

The weather has been BEAUTIFUL! As you can see in the picture, Cale was perfectly comfortable dressed for summer ;o) 

We're incredibly thankful for each of you. 

Happy Thanksgiving from the Darling's!

  1. Dear One, What beautiful pictures. Two nice things about eating at the hospital, you didn't have to cook, nor do you have to clean up. I am grateful I can do those jobs, yet right now, I am tired. Another good verse about our circumstances is "giving thanks always FOR all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" Ephesians 5:20. Giving thanks in and for our circumstances seems to be something Father uses to make us into the image of His precious Son. I love you, PRAISE God for you and am thankful for the gift of you in my life. May you feel the presence of Father in a special way, Marion
