Everyday Blessings // 7

I have two more Saturdays to prove to you that I can actually post these blessing posts ON Saturday...
Please forgive me for missing the 10th.

I am thankful...

Day #4: ...for lots of blankets on my bed and a woodstove that we can build cozy fires in to keep us warm.  

Day #5: ...that the LORD allowed me to being my ministry, First Night of Freedom, and for all the doors He has opened up for it to grow.

Day #6: ...that know matter who is President, Jesus is - and always will be - The King.

Day #7: ...for the friends God has blessed me with.  The true friends who ask me if I need prayer...who stay up till 1 in the morning listening to me vent about my day...who text me all throughout the day and let me know that they're thinking of me. 

Day #8: ...for people who take me up on my offer to be a sister in Christ to them and to pray and encourage them if they need it.

Day #9: ...for little sisters who leave notes and give me massages.  And still enjoy snuggling for nap time.

Day #10: ...for being free and able to worship God in any and everything I'm doing, whether it's cleaning the house, tidying up my room, scrubbing a sink, folding laundry.  He is always with me.  And deserves me praise all the time.


What are some things you were thankful for this week?


Everyday Blessings // 6

I can't believe it's November already.  In some ways, I'm sad that 2012 has passed so quickly.  And then another part of me can't wait till the New Year.  God has taught me so, so much this year that I can't seem to wait to start afresh and start a new year with all the lessons that I learned spurring me on to walking a better life for Him.

A lot of people I know have been doing a day-to-day thing (which began on the 1st), posting 'what I'm thankful for' each day of the month.  I thought I'd just consolidate my thankful list into my Everyday Blessings post...and I promise, I will post these every Saturday of this month.  I know I've been absolutely horrid at keeping up with y'all, but life has been excruciatingly busy.  And yes - before you ask;) - I will be updating y'all on it.  Keep an eye out for a post either Monday or Tuesday!;)

So here are the things I am thankful for...

Day #1: ...a family who loves me.  Who is always beside me in my journeys and adventures.  My greatest team of supporters.  And I sometimes wish we could always stay together forever.

Day #2: ...cold mornings outside, but warm on the inside.  A home.  A place where God dwells in, with my family and me.

Day #3: ...music.  It's such a part of my life.  I would be blind any day instead of being deaf.


What are three things that you are thankful for??
