I have to give myself major points for today's blog title... what else is there to say?
During this holiday I find myself comparing me today to myself in my 20s. Because of Jesus' blood I have been given so very much. Today I am thankful for people that have been placed in my life and I am thankful to be able to recognize what is truly important... nothing on this list can be bought on Black Friday!
I have been blessed with a husband that is strong enough in himself to allow me to be me yet also strong enough to tell me to shut-up when necessary (not often... lol). I have been blessed with two wonderful children who are vastly different from each other and truly unique (and funny). I'm grateful for my parents who are nuts but love me unconditionally (as I do them)! I'm also blessed to actually love my in-laws. I also have some great friends that have guided me through my journey with Christ who are not afraid to call my bluff when I'm acting tough!
Speaking of Black Friday... I have laid out my clothes and will be planning our attack after our fine meal today with my sister-in-law. What is different this year is that I don't have a wish list for myself... WHAT! I can say that due to my faith I realize that it's the time spent with my sister-in-law, celebrating a tradition, that is what I'm most excited about.
So to bring the blog back to the point...
"I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation." Psalm 118.21
I hope that everyone is thankful for the true gifts in life! Happy Thanksgiving!!
