I almost forgot it was Thanksgiving today!
Attended a Thanksgiving Banquet last Saturday and my mom promised pumpkin cheesecake when I go home in a couple weeks, so I got all my food bases covered. But since it is Thanksgiving today, think I’ll take the opportunity to give a little thanks.
This year, I am thankful for:
1. Faithful friends.
Like the ones who almost made me cry the other night reminiscing about what they’ll miss most about me when I move in a couple weeks. I’m thankful for the friendships that haven’t come easy, but have been worth all the hard work. Friends who forgive, friends who sharpen you, friends who are honest and make you laugh. Friends so very different from you, but with whom you learn to communicate and love.
2. Funny moments.
Which abound in my everyday life and make it colorful and bright.
3. Full-proof promises.
Like the one God made me when I was 10 years old and thought I was alone in world. He made it to me again more recently, too, in regards to my imminent move: I will take care of you; I will take care of everything.
I stake my life on those promises. And I always find myself pleasantly surprised at how He fulfills them.
I’m also thankful for
the fresh inspiration I regularly receive, the hope I have for the future, my incredibly wonderful family, and the supernatural favor I walk in.
What about you?
