see ya tomorrow!
thank you for following along and wanting to know what's in my head.
all we have needed Thy hand has provided.
i'm comin atchya with another thankful list on this fine tuesday.
...for my mornin routine with dad. i'm really gonna miss seein him every morning when i move out. i love him and i like bein by him.
...for the meaning of marriage and all i'm learning from it! somethin new every day to think about from listening during my morning commute. today's was about how when you marry someone, think of that person not as a finished product, but as someone who is still becoming who God made them to be- see that in them and call it out. and isn't that true when you're not married, too. since i am far less eloquent than tim keller, i'll quote him, "what is marriage for? it is for helping each other become our future glory selves; the new creation that God will eventually make us. the common horizon husband and wife look toward is the throne and the holy, spotless, blameless nature we will have. i can think of no more powerful common horizon than that. and that is why putting a christian friendship at the heart of a marriage relationship can lift it to a level that no other vision for marriage approaches."
...for really really cute kiddos to work with. i often look around at them during group time and just can't get over how CUTE they are! just SO cute.
...for the opportunity to vote. for my voice and opinion mattering because so many before me fought for the right. i'm not gonna lie to you guys, i've been feelin more than a little salty lately towards politics. i've heard lots and lots of negative ads and not a lot of people speaking honestly about what they are for without putting someone else down. politics are heated, filled with rage and hatred for people who identify with the opposite party. there's lots of putting people down because of politics these days, lots of faith in government leadership to be our saviors. i find myself often frustrated, confused, and really not sure what to believe from politicians. and it's hard to ask questions of anyone around me, too, because no one is objective and everyone feels so passionately. anyway. there's how i really feel, ha. but even so, it's a beautiful thing to have the right to have a say in my country and i am thankful for that.
