30 Days of Thankful -- Day 11

I'm working on plans for a new blog series this morning.  I'm pretty excited about it, but I don't want to rush into anything.  I've been reading some very interesting, and challenging, books lately and they've given me an idea.  I'm going to keep praying about it to see if God wants me to write about it.  But in the mean time, I've got some things to be thankful for!

1. Personal
God gave me the ability to write, and I think I'm pretty good at it.  It's something that has always come easily to me.  I never struggled with comma rules and I love grammar.  I even have a bachelor's degree in English.  But to be honest, I haven't written anything except a school excuse or a grocery list in almost 10 years.  I was really focused on my marriage and my kids, for good reason.  But now it seems like God is calling me back to writing.  Don't get me wrong, I am still focused on my family, but God is putting ideas in my head; these are ideas I believe He wants me to write about.  I'm not out for recognition, or anything like that, I just want to be obedient.  But I am extremely thankful that I feel God calling me to use this gift.

2.  School/Work
Yesterday I took my kids to a play area at our local mall, where I met with a friend.  We sat and talked and had a nice time.  I'm thankful that I my schedule is flexible enough to allow for visits with friends during the day.

3. Church
This Sunday is the 3rd Sunday of the month!  That means the kids in children's church will be singing in front of the congregation.  This month, they are singing You Are My King and I'm so thankful for this ministry!

4. Family
Today I am thankful for Sabrina, who is a dear friend, someone I consider family.  She lives in NC now, and we don't get to talk as often, but she is such a wonderful person.  She helped me so much through some really hard times.  I miss her dearly and wish she and her beautiful family could move back.  She's like a sister to me and I love her!


  1. FYI - there are a few grammar and spelling errors in bullet point #1.

    1. You've just learned that I'm not perfect. Even though I enjoy grammar, I never said I was perfect. I do the best I can, but I make mistakes (like forgetting to spell check). Thank goodness for God's grace, right? Thanks for reading.

  2. I love you dearly and am so thankful that God put you in my life! You were the reason that Bloomsburg became a home to us. Love you!
