As I was mulling over this week’s list topic, it was hard for me to separate those things I should be proud of with what most came to my mind — the things I am proud of. So I’m tweaking the topic just a bit and sharing the things I am proud of, in no particular order.
The things I am proud of.
I am proud of my husband. He has remained steady through adversity. He keeps me grounded and turns me back to Jesus when I think it’s easier to go my own way.
I am proud of my four children. They all know and love the Lord, and serve Him with their gifts and talents. My oldest two children are worship leaders at my church. My youngest daughter is an associate worship leader. Although my youngest son hasn’t quite figured out if he’s gifted in worship, he’s beginning to explore worship through the use of his voice and I love hearing him sing.
I am proud of my grandson. It’s so awesome to watch your children become parents. This little guy brings me so much pleasure.
I am proud of my girlfriends. Strong women of faith who persevere in times of trial. They keep me grounded, give me strength and make me laugh.
I am proud of my accomplishments as a writer. I have been blogging for almost 8 years. About three years ago I self-published my first book and it makes me proud to know how much it’s touched people.
I am proud of my ability to use my gifts and talents to help other bloggers. I’ve had the privilege to design a few blogs and have a couple of clients that I edit for regularly. It brings me so much joy to help others in this way.
I am proud of my ability to homeschool my youngest son while working full time. It’s definately a challenge, but he is beginning to thrive and that gives me hope for next year.
I am proud of my commitment to my marriage. We’ve weathered some storms and are still walking through a hard season, but I love this man with all I have. We will celebrate 28 years in August.
I am proud of my ability to forgive quickly and not harbor bitterness. I cannot hold a grudge. It’s just not in me.
I am proud of my ability to seek God through His Word and in worship. It’s not perfect but it’s a decision I try to make every day.
