Happy Friday! All I’ve heard lately is, “Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving?!” There’s been so much going on in our world recently that it seems like it drowned out everything else. I hope you’ll take some time in the next week to unplug from the noise and just reflect on your blessings. In fact, that’s what I’m doing with today’s post. Here are five things I’m thankful for – in no particular order.
#1 My Family: Next month Paul and I will celebrate 6 years of marriage! He is my “home” and I’m so grateful for my loving, patient husband. I am thankful for the sweet relationship I have with my parents and my sister (and I’m glad I get to see them for a quick visit this weekend)!
#2 My Home: Four years ago I spent Thanksgiving week happily unpacking boxes in our new home! We’ve made so many memories in this house and I’m still having fun decorating and organizing it as time passes.
#3 My Job: I am very grateful for my job. It was a direct answer to prayer and provides me with many things I never thought I’d get to experience. It’s not perfect, but I like it. That’s really something to be thankful for!
#4 God’s Word: During the last month with all the turmoil and yuckiness surrounding the election, I found God’s Word to be such a source of peace. I’ve really enjoyed listening to Scripture passages on my YouVersion app. I’ve even said “Amen” out loud as I’ve listened to the trustworthy Truth of God’s Word (particularly in the Psalms and Isaiah) and the verses came alive in my heart!
#5 You!: I’m more grateful than ever for all my friends in the blogging world. It has been so much fun to get to know you – or to get to know you even better – so far this year! Thank you for taking the time to read what I post, to comment and to share your thoughts throughout the week. It means so much to me!
I’m ready for the Christmas season, but I’m waiting to enjoy all that Thanksgiving brings before I start getting all festive and glittery. Here’s a quick tour of my home decorated for Thanksgiving!
I would love to hear something you’re thankful for, if you would like to share that with me! Have a great weekend!
