  1. Smiling and smiling because I’ve got a talker too! He’s number 4, and the youngest, so he and I get a lot of one-on-one time, and he loves to “narrate” everything. I am trusting for grace to be present to his words, because I know that my Heavenly Father is present to me when I go on and on about my plans and my needs. Thankful today for your words, Sarah.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Michele. Those talkers do keep us entertained, don’t they!?

  2. Sarah,
    Like the Israelites we need to be reminded. One way my church does that is they do communion each and every week! We have a communion meditation, song, prayers and the passing of the bread and grape juice. We are constantly reminded of what He did for us on the cruel cross!!
    I, too, need reminds of His faithfulness. I will make a list of all the things big and small that I am grateful for. Then each day I write out why I’m thankful that day. It can be hey it’s Friday or got a raise! In that way I’m reminded of ALL His Goodness!!
    Blessings 🙂

    • I love that, Beth. It helps so much to be constantly reminded and I so appreciate the churches that I have attended that structure their service to lead us to that! I love making lists too- there’s something about physically seeing the blessings that helps us to remember instead of just trying to keep track of it in my own head. Blessings to you! xoxo

  3. Was reading a post earlier about the Harvest season. There are times we reap the blessings of seeds we did not sow, but the Father gifted them to us anyway. Helps give me an attitude of gratitude

  4. I have a strong all – day – long story teller too, except he’s 16! Those little talkers don’t grow out of it and IM SO THANKFUL for that. He keeps giving me the replays of his day and sometimes I can’t take another word but mostly I wound never wish away his words!

    • 🙂 This made me smile. Oh I HOPE she is still like this when she’s in high school and can’t hide any of her teenage shenanigans from me!

      • So far so good over here! I have 5…and my talker is the first born. He still follows me around the house telling me stories until I say “NO MORE WORDS PLZ! I love you but….” 🙂

  5. Oh, my, thank you so much for this post! I often need a reminder to focus on what my son has done well, rather than what he’s done not-so-well. There are days when I feel like he doesn’t get any encouragement or positive words from me and I am doing my utmost to make sure he gets more positive encouragement from me on a daily basis.
