As the big day is tomorrow, you know, the happiest day of the year, Thanksgiving, we thought we ought to share some of the things we’re very thankful for :-]
1. 1. Salvation! We’re forever thankful for a God who saves, who has saved us, and who every day saves us from ourselves ;) . We’re thankful for mercy, grace, and everyday learning more and more about the character of our loving and powerful God who sent His son to die and live again for us, saving us from what we deserved.
2. Family. We’re surrounded by a wonderful family who loves us, teaches us, and takes care of us, we are so blessed!
3. 3. Friends. We’re also surrounded by a “family of friends” I like to say, people who are so close and dear to us that we’d call them our own. People who have given so much of themselves for us. We love our people!
4. 4. We’re thankful for the daily blessings we have: jobs, a roof over our heads, food in our mouths.
5. 5. We’re incredibly thankful for each other, how God brought us together and how we came to be as a couple, now married people, is a really awesome story. We so didn’t deserve it, but we have incredible love for one another.
Obviously there’s so so much more, but those are the big ones!
1. Running! I lurrrrrrve to run! And I’m grateful for legs on which I can exercise and a body I can work out!
2. My hubband! Loves him!
3. Family and Friends. Seriously. I can’t say this enough. We are SO blessed. I LOVE my family! I LOVE my inlaws! I LOVE my friend! Like I said, SO blessed!
