Many thanks

I knew I would have a hard time committing to the daily posts leading to Thanksgiving, but I really feel compelled to put it out there, for the record, that I am moved beyond words by the blessings I have in my life.  This weekend, which was relatively laid back with only 2 events planned on Saturday, church activities and grocery shopping today, has somehow passed in a flash (yet again) and I find myself in the twinkling glow of my festive living room.  It’s here, that I’m reminded that not everyone has shelter from the wind I hear screaming outside. 

Just yesterday I had the pleasure of sharing one of those special, marriage moments with my amazing husband.  It’s a story that may be shared someday, but for now I am so thankful for the mutual respect of our relationship and the vault we can use to store our most sacred secrets!

After sharing a much-needed two-hour nap with my special snuggler, we spent the evening with close friends talking, laughing and learning more about the joys and challenges of the Christian life.  I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to worship freely and humbled by the mighty God we serve.

I pray for strength for the weeks ahead and patience through this happy, yet hectic holiday holiday season as I continue to find that balance between family, work, and hobbies.
