Today I was reading about the widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 17) whose oil and flour didn’t run out during a famine thanks to a miracle, but who still questioned God’s goodness to her – the study I read mentioned how easy it is to get used to our blessings until they are just the status quo and we expect them, rather than seeing them for the blessings they are.
One blessing I’m enjoying this week is only having one kid in diapers. Jack has been daytime potty trained for a long time, but is now also trained for naps and night time. It makes me so glad whenever naptime or bedtime rolls around and I only have to change one diaper!
I actually don’t mind changing diapers (of my own kids anyway) and never felt put out by having more than one kid in diapers, but I’m feeling blessed to enjoy this window of one diaper wearer in our house. Watch, next time we have a baby it will be stealth triplets or something. That would also be a blessing, though not of the minimal diapering sort.
What is an everyday blessing you’re thankful for today?
Note: for background on why little 2 year old Hannah was standing next to a tower of diapers, read about another type of diapering blessing we received a few years ago.
