Thankful For :: 421 - 430

But thanks be to God, who made us His captives and leads us along in Christ's triumphal procession. Now wherever we go He uses us to tell others about the Lord and to spread the Good News like a sweet perfume.
* * * 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 (NLT) * * *

I fall and I fail often. And yet the Lord doesn't give up on me. I know that I don't take every opportunity to share about the Good News and I know that my attitudes and actions do not always cause me to smell like a sweet fragrance of my Heavenly Father. BUT...He's working on me and molding me to be more like Him today than I was yesterday. I praise the Lord for His faithfulness to me when I stumble over and over in my Christian walk. This could go on the list each week, because I fail each week - but He never gives up and He never disappoints. Praise Him.

This week I'm thankful for...

421. Getting to catch up with a friend we haven't seen since we lived in Botswana

422. Coming home from work to a delicious meal prepared by the aforementioned friend

423. Keeping a sense of humor when things happen on the job

424. Finding a $120 hotel room for $60 through Priceline (name your own price) - begin {happy dance} now

425. Peter's unexpected phone calls (at work and at home)

426. Finding a place that serves yummy Thai food

427. Seeing three adorable raccoons in the backyard (which I'll take any day over skunks or snakes)

428. Finding a quick fix when the car failed to start

429. Peter's mechanically-inclined mind

430. My sister is celebrating the big 5-0 this week-end, and I'm thankful for her love and big-sister-ness during my 29.5 years in this family. She was a Junior in college when I arrived on the scene and taught me about the really important things, like how to suck my thumb and what pop and chocolate tasted like. I also blame her for two of my vices: children's books and a desire to travel the world. Happy Birthday, CB!

She's a bit Internet shy, thus, the disguises...

  1. Coming home to a cooked meal is one of the simple pleasures in life. I am glad you got to see an old friend - they really do warm the soul, don't they?
