i've got a list of gratitude for ya today, november 15th. here goes!
...for my mornin routine. for getting ready for the day a little earlier than usual so i had a bit more time to be at the counter with dad.
...for the sun shinin again!
...for the truth about God's intention behind sex in the meaning of marriage by tim keller. the man's just spittin truth like crazy all throughout that book and i'm grateful for all of his wisdom, even if it is counter-cultural. (& guys, i'm almost done with the book so you'll get to stop hearin about it soon ;))
...for prep time!! such a prized break in the day to get stuff done.
...for coworkers i really enjoy. said it before, but i don't care. the point of these lil listies is to acknowledge every gratitude, every day.
...for the little moment of eye contact i had with a little buddy today. it was so cute! it was like he noticed i exist for the first time (even though i see him every day haha) and he gave me a long look and then a smirky smile back at me. gah! i loved it.
...for the fun and excitement i feel when looking up honeymoon hotels & airbnbs. my favorite part of planning so far!
...for how my coworkers and i just had to laugh at the end of the day at how squirrely and amped up the kids were. haha, we thought we were going to lose our minds!
...for weekend plans with the floods! i really like being around them, and definitely like bein around francis. i'm thankful for such a gift.
...for God's infinite grace and love for me. feelin extra undeserving right now, when i think back about my day... the way i sort of rushed through my Bible reading this morning to check it off my list, the way i sort of got annoyed and snappy with my mom, the way i sort of didn't pray for anyone today really, how much i thought about myself. man. i'm really imperfect, guys. i hope these lists never fool ya, i've got issues and i forget about gratitude as much as the next person. i'm extra grateful for God loving me, even in all of my unlovely-ness. extra extra grateful.
...for life. breath in my lungs and a beating heart. if that weren't enough, there are somehow also people who love me a lot, and a God who loves me the most. wow. wow wow wow.
all we have needed, Thy hand truly has provided.
great is Thy faithfulness.
catch ya soon! (potentially not til sunday cuz i'll be in ole wisco, but we'll see :))
love you guys!
