The Available Word

November 7:

I’m really thankful for godly men and women who create materials for Christian growth. With a long commute and all, I have been really enjoying and benefiting from sermons posted as podcasts this fall. Here is one that I have particularly been enjoying and growing through. I’m thankful for brothers and sisters committed to stirring one another up to love and good works!

I’m thankful for all of the things God lets us enjoy. Even things like novels. And, I finished a good one today . . . Placebo: A Jevin Banks Novel (The Jevin Banks Experience) 🙂 

Grace and Little Old Men

November 4:

I’m thankful for the global church – the body of Christ here on earth.

I wore a necklace from my grandma today. I’m thankful for grandparents that gave me an amazing mom and that gave me a godly example to learn from. I am blessed!

November 6:

So, it’s not the greatest thing to share, but today I was really angry about something that came up, and I was brooding. I saw on a wall reading for one of my Linguistics classes, just letting myself be in a bad mood. Then, a little old man came and sat next to me on the wall and looked at my book for a minute or so. I really wasn’t in a talkative mood, so I just kept reading. Well, he struck up a conversation. Asked me if I was living here, if I spoke Turkish, I told him I was married and he was shocked and asked about my husband and whether I had children. Then, when plans changed and I was going to meet Jeremy somewhere else, he stood up and said, “Oh, well, I’ll just walk home now, too.” So, he walked with me until I went through the turnstiles to wait for the bus.

I didn’t really want it at first, but it was a blessing and grace for God to send that little old man along to get my focus off of myself for a little bit.

A Month of Thankfulness

Happy November!!

I so need to better practice being thankful, and when better to practice than this month? I’ve noticed a couple of other friends begin a daily documentation of what they are thankful this month, and I’m going to join them. I’m not promising to post every day, but I will have something to share that I am thankful for every day. If you’re doing the same, send me a link to your blog, and we’ll make a blog circle out of it!! (You can contact me by leaving a comment or emailing me from the contact link on the left hand side!)

I’m thankful for this guy that I get to spend my life with. He’s a blessing and encouragement to me, and I’m so honored to be his wife!!

What are you thankful for?
