I am not feeling very thankful today...BUT I am CHOOSING to be thankful despite my circumstances. Satan is trying to steal my joy. We had a fantastic weekend where we talked a lot about Holy Discontent. Not discontent in our lives or by what we own or are doing but discontent straight from the Holy Spirit that moves us to action. There have been several times the beginning of this week that I realize that Satan is trying to take my focus off what we learned and focus on this decaying world around us. Today is no different...
Last night, I was taking Jake out for the last time and realized that water was dripping from our light fixture in the kitchen. It is an odd thing to see water coming out of a light. It took me a second to respond and I just stared at it, hardly believing it was real. We checked above the kitchen in the bathroom but saw nothing. It started to sink in that it was probably a pipe in the floor of the bathroom. :(

Thankfully the local plumber came early this morning and I was hoping for an easy fix and on with my day. No such luck. As you can see from the pics, they are upstairs pulling up the floor. He just informed me that the leak is not by the toilet and they just carried a torch up there!!! It is suprisingly similar to the torch that they showed on the screen this weekend when talking about Holy Discontent. Oh Lord, help me to feel YOUR discontent and be CONTENT in my daily struggles!
