Thankful Thursday--- Blessings

This week has opened my eyes to so many blessings.
Blessings that I witness on a daily basis but am to caught up in the now to recognize them.

....for the opportunity to worship Christ in public. A girl in my small group talked about how her sister served over seas and had to hide when they worshiped and as she came back to the states she cried during her first service where 100's of people gathered and worshiped. What a great blessing I take for granted each Sunday.

.... for my amazing students. Tomorrow is the last day of school and while the last week of school is always the longest I am going to miss their smiling faces in two weeks when I get a whole group of new 6th grade babies :)

....for my husband. The Lord has blessed me with a great one and while our marriage is no where near perfect, we are learning to show more grace to each other each day and I can see the impact it makes daily. Showing love like Jesus is hard but the benefits are so great.

....for Kids Week. I am so glad the Summit is reaching out to kids all over the Triangle this year and that Andrew and I get to serve. We come home exhausted and so tired but I love that we are sharing the Gospel with our future :)

....For Grace. I am not a perfect person, but I have a perfect Savior. The grace and forgivness I have recieved is more than I can ever put into words. I am thankful for forgiveness during my times of weakness.

What are you thankful for?


  1. I love this post, it is so awesome to be able to take a minute during your day and realize all the things you have to be grateful for. Something I need to start doing more often!

  2. A lady in our small group always praises the fact that we get to worship in public. It's an amazing blessing!
