I know I normally do this on Monday (or early Tuesday) but I'm actually glad I didn't get around to this until today. I have a lot to be thankful for...
I am thankful that today is my grandfather's 87th birthday. Thank you, God, for my grandfather and blessing us with his years.
I am thankful for the ruling about the Virginia Tech massacre, finding the school negligent. My cousin was one of those killed, and I am praying this will bring her parents some healing. Mom and I were crying most of the afternoon. I... I don't really have words to express. I just am glad justice is yours, God, and thank you for this ruling.
I am thankful I spent yesterday wedding dress shopping, catching up with an old friend and being girlie. I will have more about this tomorrow for Preparation Thursday.
I am thankful for God's sweetness and His peace. I trust you, help my disbelief.
I am thankful for Ryan and my relationship, communication skills, and faith for helping us grow and maintain our love despite the 8,000 mile distance.
I am thankful for getting time with best friend Lydia yesterday.
I am thankful I got to spend time with my sister Alison this Saturday.
I am thankful for the "reunion" we had at Bible Study this Friday. One of our own, Keiko, moved to New York City and came down for a visit because her grandson Josiah was just born (her daughter lives here) and that was awesome. Also my friends Grace and Jacob came and I got to see them and their darling son Daniel for the first time since November.
I am incredibly thankful for this week, God, and how you stretch and grow me. Help me share what you have shared with me to pass on, and let me bring you glory always. I love you. You are so sweet! I am so blessed.
Linking up to I'm Blessed and Thankful Thursdays.
