This past week has been crazy... well really, this past week and a half. It'd be this past week if I'd actually written this on Monday like I normally do! In one week I started a new job, celebrated my sister's birthday, Thanksgiving, met my best friends new (and first) boyfriend, worked Black Friday at a giant retail store, and was able to plug back into my church again (finally!) Crazy busy week.
But lots of things for which to be grateful!
I'm thankful for facebook, which has allowed me to keep touch with people in the midst of insanity with ease.
I'm thankful for Lydia, who is loving and spontaneous.
I'm thankful she finally has someone to love and be loved by! (Well, you know, in a not-just-friends-or-family way. Haha)
I'm thankful for Ryan, who uplifts me even when I fail and helps me turn my mourning to praise.
I'm thankful for the bounty we have in America, and the ability we have to pray and give.
I'm thankful for family, and getting to be with family during the beginning of the holiday season.
I'm thankful for warmth as the days get colder and colder!
I'm thankful for God holding me together when I try to tear myself apart.
I'm thankful for the way so many things are interweaved and shows God's powerful and delicate hand in all aspects of life. Thank you, God, that we are never overlooked or forgotten, but instead you are nearer than our next breath, always.
I'm thankful Advent is upon us! Happy New Church Year!
And as always, I am thankful and blessed by you, dear readers. Yay!
Linking up with I'm Blessed and Thankful Tuesdays.
