During this time of the year I like to remember the things that I am truly thankful for. So here is a short list (that doesn't do justice to the blessings I have received) of my thanks....
-My salvation. The Lord, my Beloved, has loved and forgiven a sinner like me. He died on my behalf so that I could spend eternity with Him. Oh for the day when I get to go home!!!!
-My family. I have a father who has shown me what a true man after God's own heart looks like, a mother who is a Proverbs 31 woman and would do anything for anybody, and two beautiful sisters who have become great friends of mine over the past few years. Plus I now get to add ...a wonderful bro-in-law who is awesome!!
-My friends. These girls have been such a blessing to my life. Every single one of them have impacted me and my walk with my Beloved, have encouraged me, challenged me and spurred me on. Without them I wouldn't be the woman I am today.
- My job. I am so incredibly blessed to be working in the school district and in the school that I do. I have an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement from teacher, parents and admin alike. I am given opportunities to better myself which will lead to the betterment of my teaching.
- My house/roommate. I live in a beautiful apartment. I just like to sit and look at it sometimes because it is so fun. I also have the opportunity to live with a great girl who is passionately pursuing the Lord and challenges me often. Her desire for God and AFRICA has helped our friendship flourish and I am so blessed for such a wonderful roomie!
There is obviously so much more but this is just some of the many things I am blessed with! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
