Thanks and Blessings

I'm taking time to thank God, as I do each week.  Decided to do it a little different format this week.
Thank you God for Sophie. She's really cute.

Thank you God for loving me. Thank you for forgiving me. Thank you for Ryan, and his patience. Thank you for having us grow closer this past week. Thank you for showing me more and more of my weaknesses, even though it's painful, because I know you love me enough not to give me more than I can bear. I do trust you, I just get confused sometimes. Thank you for my friendships. Thank you that I finally got to catch up with a certain friend. Thank you for allowing me and my brethren to participate in the work that helps to achieve some of your plans. Thank you for having me live in the time of the internet. Thank you for the Bible. Thank you for Grace. Thank you, primarily and in all ways, for being who you are, allowing me to know you, and adore you.

Help me know you better, love you more, grow in faith, in love, in patience.

I love you. I know your presence drives out evil. I need more of you, for I still have many dark corners in my heart.

Thank you for the warmth of my house as it's so cold and windy out. Thank you for our pets. Thank you for my family. Thank you for awesome publishers that for some reason think me writing out a review is worth giving me a free book (yay!) and thank you for those books.  Thank you for books in general. I love books.

Thank you for letting us thank you. I know it's more about putting my soul through the discipline of being grateful than your need to be thanked, though I know you delight in that. Please delight in me. Let me delight in you, and you in me. I love you. I really do love you. Give me more love to love you with, I do it so imperfectly.

Thank you for chocolate and full stomachs, for paychecks and provision, for hopes, dreams, faith, and You. Always, always thank you for You.

Linking up.
