...for listening to like five minutes of christmas music at the end of my drive to work. it's weird, normally i'm more of a wait-til-after-thanksgiving person, but i don't know, this year i'm all for it. i say bring on every cozy heart-warming thing that comes with celebrating christmas.
...for my dear fran and how he's been pressing into some hard stuff this week. also for every time he calls me because i really love talkin to him and i miss him.
...for every part of the meaning of marriage on audiobook that i had to pause to write down this morning because, WHAM! it's good. oh man. think i'll have to quote it in a separate post because it deserves some time to drink in!
...for a different kind of day. my days are typically very similar but today a few of us had CPR training all day while the others took the kids and it was actually pretty okay. a lot quieter than my days normally are, that's for sure! just nice to do something different for a day, and i really got a kick out of my coworker, jill, and all of her funny comments and the dynamic between all of us. i don't know, it was fun. i really enjoy my coworkers.
...for pizza provided for us for lunch :)))))
...for hangin with mom & dad.
...for thinkin about how it might look to be an old woman with gray hairs, at the end of life after a lifetime of following Jesus. i was talkin to mom about this tonight.. i bet you'd be so at peace, so content and loving and hospitable and your eyes would just shine with love, just spillin out of you, after years and years of walking with Jesus and learning from Him and practicing His ways. at least, that's my goal. to look that much like dear Jesus when i reach the end of my life. oh gosh, it's so beautiful to think about, i actually tear up every time. can't handle it. makes me want to weep when i think about what God can do with a heart when we let Him have hold of it.
...for this silly happy little pic our friend, hoopes, took of us. :))
happy friday, friends!
hope the weekend brings lots of rest for you. i've got a few things i'm looking forward to and i'm thankful for that as well.
all we have needed, Thy hand has provided.
love you guys.
