Well, everyone is getting in the spirit of being vocal about their gratefulness with Thanksgiving right around the corner. I decided that I would post once a week with the things that I am thankful for and didn’t have time until today so here goes:
1. My Family. I love my parents and my brothers so very much and I don’t know what I’d do without them. I got to spend the weekend at home so I got to spend some time with them and it was wonderful. I’m so thankful that the Lord has blessed with an awesome family.
2. This Family. The Warbingtons. They have let me into their lives and I will be forever grateful for that. I love that I can spend with them and it doesn’t matter how long I stay. Mrs. Suzanna is the older sister I never had and I love her girls to pieces.
3. My Church. Sherwood. I got to spend this morning at Sherwood and I’m reminded how special of place that it is. There is no where else like it and I’m so thankful for the people there that have forever left their mark on my life. It was where I worked this summer and I’m missing being upstairs and sitting in my chair in Hayley’s office everyday. I miss getting to chat with Tiffany about seminary and go see Mrs. Beccy when there was going for me to do. I miss sitting in the Bennett’s living room on Thursday nights and sitting under Steph’s teaching every Sunday. It’s always to go home and see my friends and get hugs from the people who are examples of what it looks like to live a godly life and teach under Pastor Michael’s teaching of God’s Word.
4. The fact that I didn’t have to ride by myself this weekend. I know it may sound a little weird but it’s long ride of nothing and it’s always nice to have someone else in the car with you. I’m so thankful that Anna and I were able to work it out. Four hours go so much faster to have someone to talk to.
“‘Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me; O Lord, be my helper.’ You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” Psalm 30:10-12
