Joining Kim and friends in expressing gratitude on Thursdays...
I am thankful, as you know, that school starts next Wednesday.
I am also thankful, despite how my post yesterday may have seemed, for our long summer and for the days--and evenings!--spent at home. Though I eagerly embrace fall and the return to school, schedule and structure, I also know it will be a return to a more hectic pace. Being away every night this past week--to practices, orientations and the like--reminds me how thankful I am we've enjoyed these months here, at home.
I am thankful for good books.
I am thankful for my church and I am also thankful that the Lord has given us the resources and vision to purchase land to be used for His kingdom purposes and a more permanent meeting place one day, glory to His name!
I am thankful for comments and phone calls that remind me why I indulge in this kind of self-exposed confessional (aka blogging). Seriously, I am thankful for those of you who visit and read; you encourage me!
I am thankful for central air conditioning.
I am thankful it is August, hot as it is, because after August comes September and September means fall can't be far behind.
I am thankful for the opportunities to (hopefully) encourage others with the gospel and I pray I will be found faithful as I do so tomorrow morning!
What are you thankful for this week?
