Wednesday-Thankful for blog writers. I’ve become a part of a community in blogs over the last year. It’s amazing how it brings people together, starts conversations, and forges friendships. I realize some think it’s absolutely ridiculous, but those of us who write and share appreciate those who read and comment.
Thursday-I’m thankful for old friends. The kind of friend that we can go without seeing one another for over a year, with huge life experiences happening, and pick right back up where we left off. I got to spend the evening in Nashville with my good friend Jill having a great meal and hearing a great band play…and sadly as I was looking through my digital pictures and this one (from 2006) was the only one I could find of she and I. We’re super bad about not taking pictures…it’s only evidence, lol, as we used to say.
Friday-Safety…God keeps me safe in ways I have no way of knowing alot of the time. Definitely thankful for the safety He provides in those moments.
Saturday-Humility…thankful God humbles me when I definitely need it. He showed me I needed to seek forgiveness and apologize to individuals. It wasn’t my proudest moment when I saw how I had acted in the moment. Thankful He humbles me…as I should always be walking in humility.
Sunday-I’m thankful I can give to others. I volunteered to hand out Baskets of Hope from KARM this afternoon. I will say it’s really challenged me and confirmed some things in my heart that God has been pressing on for the last few weeks. I had the privilege to pray over families as they took their meals home to have Thanksgiving. 1500+ families will now have meals on Thanksgiving thanks to the generous hearts who prepared Baskets of Hope…many of which came from the SHBC Singles ministry and care groups.
Monday-My students…wow. The four young women I have the honor of working with daily, sitting around a table at lunch each week for meetings makes my Mondays so much better. I don’t believe I have ever laughed so hard as I have this year with my students. I’m thankful for them. They are a HUGE reminder to me as to why I do what I do for long hours for weeks at a time….
