…the title of a a new update available for one of my computer’s applications. what on earth…?
thanksgiving chapel this morning – very good. i should not be on the internet right now, but lately am in the mood to type, write, and express, so here i am.
three things i am grateful for specifically this year, and they are obvious and i say them all the time, and true:
his kindness. his patience with me. his love for everyone around him. how carefully he has formulated a budget for us that is well within our means and includes special funds for tithing, dates, travel, and fun money. how he says “hey beautiful” with relief in his voice whenever i am calling, or when he leaves a message. i am grateful for how he serves me, helps me, and for how he inspires me to live. i am grateful that we live together now and share everything.
being home again. having friends be neighbors and neighbors, friends.
having a job, and extremely lucky to like it. i’m grateful for Guy and the humor and hard-working spirits of my coworkers. i am grateful for health insurance.
Remember God’s bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor.
Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!
~Henry Ward Beecher
happy thanksgiving, friends.
