Thankful #7 2013

Today is my anniversary.
I have been married to my husband for 4 years.
We have been together for 8....

Today I am thankful for my husband.
He is the provider for my family.
He is my best friend.
He is my source of strength when I feel like I can't go on.
He encourages me in just the right moments.
He flirts with me.
(He loves to watch me blush)
He is funny.
He is silly.
He loves to love me.
but most important, above all else.....
He love God. And he shows every one all the time. He sings His praises all the time.

Thankful #6 2013

Today, I am thankful for.......
Open windows.
You can take this in the spiritual way, you know "When God closes the door, he opens the window"
But I really mean, an open window....
The kind that lets fresh cool autumn air into my house.
I love having windows open in my house.

Thankful #5 2013

I love my sisters.
No matter how mean we were to each other as kids....
No matter how different our lives become....
We are still each other's biggest fan, (well sometimes biggest a loving kind sisterly way)
We grew up knowing we are all we have... We may fight with each other, but I will be a monkey's uncle before you mess with my sister!
I am thankful for a sisterly bond.

Thankful #4 2013

This is not the best picture, I was trying to zoom my less than par iPhone camera from the sound room of our church...
But none the less, I wanted to share this picture because it is my two favorite people in one picture..... Joseph and Katrina.

Joseph is a hardworking, honest, sweet, service oriented servant of God. We share the love of many odd things, have our own inside jokes, and can pretty much laugh at about and with each other at any time. His passion for all things Holy is astounding and in fact I learn more from him than he knows.

Katrina is my sweet friend. She can make me smile just by listening to Christmas music no matter if it is the season for it or not. Katrina was my "navigator" on a trip across the country....and we are such good friends we could bring laughter to any situation at pretty much any point.....She works hard for the kingdom of God, sings beautifully, and despite a rough emotional childhood, her strength, trust in God, and devotion to seek His will gives me hope.
So all in all.....I am thankful for the relationships I have with the newly married Joseph and Katrina Phillips.

Thankful #3 2013

I am thankful today for my church's ladies activities...
This weekend a lot of us went down to a retreat camp and spent 18 hours in deep intercession, supplication, and learning how to develop a deeper prayer life, and ultimately that will increase our faith and walk with God.
In the past few months, we have had to spontaneously provide meals for four funerals, we had to serve    our whole church family, we have had different groups plan events for our fellowship. 
We keep busy....sometimes we feel too busy......but we have a great time...and we all now have a friendship with each other that can't be beat.

Here are a few of the ladies at our breakfast fellowship we had at Mimi's Cafe.

Thankful #2 2013

Today I am thankful for Pinterest.
I get a lot of fun ideas from there.
The site gives me a place to organize everything I want to do that gives me a creative outlet.
The chalkboards above are pins I have made real. 
I made the chalkboards last year, and searched for thanksgiving ideas this year....
Thank you Pinterest!

Thankful #1 2013

I will try not to repeat any from previous years.... But I am going to try and share what I am thankful for throughout the month...

Day 1
I am thankful for how fast time moves...
Sounds weird I know but, it seems just like yesterday I was packing up my Christmas items....and here we are November 1st, 54 days away from Christmas.... I love love love having traditions and family time and celebrating Jesus his birth, and his miraculous life!
And unlike being an 8 year old having to wait FOREVER for birthdays and I blink and time moved half a year!
