- I'm thankful for conviction. I know it sounds strange but that's what keeps me in line, when the Holy Spirit speaks to me about something I'm not doing or should be doing. This week, while off I've have many nights to think about life and what I'm doing with it. Let's just say I could be doing better. So, I hope to come off of this vacation refreshed and ready to keep moving (as this is my word of the year...see more about that here).
- I am thankful for bloggers who read because my summer reading list is growing. I'm thinking of putting it together to share with you so you can have some good reads too. I know one book I'm going to break down and read is Twilight. I just have to know what the excitement is all about.
- I'm thankful for Staycation 2009! This time off has been very productive and very needed. Rondell and I have gotten so much done and we've spent some really good quality time together as a family. One thing we (OK, Rondell) did was paint our bathroom. Here are some during pictures:
What? You don't have a painter on staff? I've had mine for 7 years now...great investment!
If you look above the shower you will see the mustard color that the bathroom used to be. Now the color is Asparagus by Behr. It's just what I wanted.
- I'm thankful for blogging. While sometimes reading other blogs makes me a little envious (nice houses, laundry rooms, staying at home, close Small Groups), I learn so much and have been inspired to do things I would never have thought I would. I've also "met" some really cool people who I can call friends.
Why are you thankful?
