Thanksgiving. Day 22.

Today I am thankful that

Christopher Columbus

decided to stay in America,


Plymouth Rock 

was discovered,


Amerigo Vespucci

decided to explore further,


the First Thanksgiving

happened without regard to race.


Thanksgiving. Day 21.

Today I am thankful for


It’s the one fruit of the Spirit I struggle the most with.










Out of all of those patience is the hardest for me to achieve. Lately though, I’ve been making a conscious effort to be much more patient and to remember that

“patience is a virtue.”

I am learning to see the bigger picture and to “wait it out” instead of rushing through life like a crazy person.

Life is definitely worth the wait.

Thanksgiving. Day 23.

I am thankful for

my family.

I know, I’ve used this one already but it’s still very true.

My family

encourages me

prays for me

believes in me

{even/especially when I don’t believe in myself}

and they do all the other “normal” family things too


pick on me

tell baby stories

or even worse

tell embarrassing stories

but that’s family.


It’s what we do.

Thanksgiving. Day 24.

Today I am thankful

that I can travel between states

without a passport.

{Although, some might agree that, certain states should require a passport!}

This is just another example of the freedoms we experience by living in America.

Thanksgiving. Day 25.

Today I am thankful for

all the little children

in my church.

It is so much fun to walk into the sanctuary before service and see all of these little people running and playing, laughing and having fun at church.

My prayer for them

is that they

never know

what life is like

without Jesus.

Thanksgiving. Day 20.

Today I am thankful for
the man in my life.

He is

He knows how to make me


and has no bones about picking on me.

He’s good with his boys and with my boys.

He gets it.

Thanksgiving. Day 19.

Today I am thankful for


Yes, I said it.

I highly value my sleep.

Not the dozing sleep where I wake up super easy,

but that really, really deep quality “sleep like a rock” kind of sleep.
