Today several thoughts come to my mind as I consider what I am thankful for:
My four sweet daughters who have grown into such lovely women. I am finding this time of my life to be so rewarding and I almost feel guilty. In spite of me, these girls have turned out to be so beautiful inside and out. They are gifted, generous, loving, and kind. They are all using their God given gifts to make a difference in this world and I couldn't be more proud of them. The empty nest is looming but I don't feel sad - I am truly enjoying watching them leave home and becoming who their dad, me and mostly God have been preparing them to be.
Contemporary Christian fiction. I just love reading so much. I would argue with anyone who says that Christian fiction is a waste of time. God inspires authors to reach into the depths of my heart and it changes me.
Knowing that I am leaving on vacation soon! We are going to Florida to spend a week the first of June and I am SO ready! I am thankful that this trip has worked out for us to take our youngest daughter to Disney World.
The ladies in my Wednesday night class. We are going through the book "Peeking Into A Box of Chocolates" - it's about the different kinds of temptations women face. It never ceases to amaze me how much I learn from these ladies - and I am supposed to be teaching them!
The three day weekend that is almost here! I am really needing a day with nothing to do!
and last but not least,
My blog. I can't begin to say how much I am enjoying this blogging thing! I can't explain it - it just brings me joy!
