Hey Everybody! I hope that you’re having a great time preparing for Thanksgiving! It’s hard to believe that it’s so close. It makes me wonder what happened to this year–it’s going so fast. So, here’s a few blessings that I’ve noticed in my life this past week.
1) Having the keys for ONE whole year!
One year ago tomorrow (November 18th) we got the keys for this house. One day earlier than we had planned we were able to bring a load or two over and begin the task of moving houses. We were excited, overwhelmed and exhausted.It took us a lot longer than we had planned (5 days) but it was worth it. We began the task of unpacking and setting up house and got it done and decorated in record time.. It only took a week or two. But looking back over the last year we have often wondered how it is that it’s only been one year–It feels like we’ve been here forever!
2) Decorating for Christmas!! (:
Again, I feel as though I should warn you. If you’re one of those people that doesn’t like to even think about Christmas until the Friday after Thanksgiving you might just want to scroll on down to blessing number 3…
Last Friday, we began the mighty task of decorating for Christmas. In many ways it’s the first time we’ve really decorated this house for Christmas. We kept it very simple last year and just decorated the main rooms of the house. This year we’re planning on decorating the entire house. It’s a bit more challenging to find new homes for each decoration in this house. But, I’m excited to see this house all decked out for the Holidays. It’s going to be all warm and toasty and festive. It makes me very happy. (: And as a little bonus there are now TWO radio stations playing Christmas music!! (: (:
3) The Support of my Church family
I know that I have often in the last year taken the time to thank all of you wonderful readers for the support and encouragement that you have given me. But this week, I’d like to do it once more this time thanking some very special people in my life. My church family.
The Bible says that we are the children of God, therefore as such we are all a family. One of the reasons I love my church is that it really is like a big family. We can laugh, cry, joke, and worship together. I’m beyond blessed and thankful for each and every one of you! Your encouragement and love as I have grown and pursued the dreams that God has laid on my heart have meant so much more than you will ever know. Thank you so much for reading and supporting this little blog of mine. I truly appreciate everything that you all have done for me and my family over the years!
