for dad working from home.
for gracie's loud snoring from the other room. (i love that dog!)
for psalms. oh, for psalms! oh my goodness, like a cold drink of water to a thirsty soul. (especially psalm 119 today)
for a job. (!!!) it feels like i've never been so grateful for anything in my entire life! (okay, that's not true.) but wow. such a kind God to give me a job, and one where i can spend my days loving people and learning how to love people!!
for justin weber's friendship.
for experiencing new cuisine with brian! seriously, i was so happy to dip that spongey flatbread in my meat-kale-cottage cheese dip like they apparently do in ethiopia. other cultures are so interesting and so important to me.
...also for cultures! cultures (food and dance and traditions and languages and different skins) are beautiful things!
for my monday night "discover group" at church and the people there i get to know and learn from.
for holland's words that constantly ring in my ears from visiting her a week ago, about a "huddle" she had with andrea, and they talked and thought deeply about how to love God with their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.
for music and how it speaks so deeply to a soul and how it is my favorite way to love and care for people.
for spyhouse. (i've been there an embarrassing amount of times lately.. i'm not even going to tell you how many.) it's my favorite, okay?!
for dove's youtube projects about all women's beauty. (ignoring that dove is owned by the same company as axe and axe produces degrading commercials about women to sell axe to men & contradicts everything they do with their dove brand.)
for being twenty-two.
for the easy mac (star wars shapes) that i'm going to have for lunch.
for isaac's words about aslan.
for paige coming home tomorrow night!!!
for my friend bethany's collection of the most beautiful movie scores on spotify. (mostly from pride & prejudice)
for the LORD. i am thankful for the LORD. the most beautiful reason to be alive.
