We took our granddaughter to the park. It was fun to watch her face as she came twirling down the slide, mixed with excitement and fear, all at the same time. The look of fear only lasted a minute, once she realized that Grandma was waiting at the bottom to catch her, the fear was gone and her face lit up with excitement and she was ready to go again.

I was thinking about my granddaughters reaction and thought how much we as Christians are much like her. Often times we find ourselves spinning and twirling thru life, hoping that someone will be there to catch us before we fall.

I am so thankful that at every slippery slope of life, God waits with open arms to catch His children. Some things may seem scary, but when we learn to trust God like my granddaughter learned to trust me, we will not hesitate to get back up and do it all over again.

Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY and I am happy to be hosting for the month of March. Have you learned to trust God for even the things that seem twisted? Share with us your grateful heart of how God has caught you time after time.

Happy TT!

Knowing God is always there to catch us (or pick us up and care for us when we fall) is a HUGE thing to be thankful for!!!
