Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for..



1. LIFE! Life is such a gift. It is precious. It's a journey like no other. It's a road of joys and trials.

2. HOPE!!! God just blows me away with the hope that He shows me each and everyday. I think that the fact that He does show hope is only another example of His goodness, kindness, and faithfulness!!!

"We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love rest us upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you."

Psalm 33:20-22

3. I am so thankful for each and every person who has "poured" in to my life. You have shown me encouragement and love each in your own unique ways.

4. FALL!!! :) I love fall. Chloe and i went on a long walk this morning and I just marveled at the beautiful trees, leaves, and the crisp, cool air. It was so beautiful. I had my mP3 and i was quietly singing the worship songs as we walked. I'm sure I looked like such a nerd walking with a big smile on my face, mouthing the words, dragging a 90 pound dog with me. Oh well. It's worth it.

5. Parents!! I am SOO thankful for my parents. A big shout-out to my mom and dad. You guys are awesome!!

Have a lovely Thursday!! Take a moment and ponder what you're thankful for today. We've been so blessed.

Great post, I think it is so cool that you enjoy your parents because at your age most people don't want to have anything to do with them. It is very important to have a close relationship with them, they can be so helpful to us as we go through many of the same things they have been through. I am not close with my parents, that's just how we were raised, we are not a close family, although I wish I was! Also it is so awesome that you are so into God at your age!!!! Keep it up! It's worth it! Some day soon we will get to see our Creator and worship him for eternity!
