Thankful!

So I’ve been meaning to blog but my time keeps slipping away.  The business of life sweeps me up and I can’t get to my computer, I can’t get the words out fast enough to keep up with my “to do lists.” 

Or even to keep up with the blessings in my life.   I am truly blessed and I am so thankful.  I am thankful for the good and the bad in my life.  For the difficult times I am thankful.  Because those times mold and shape who I am.  They give me opportunities to fully rely on God and they grow me closer to Him.   I have never been so full of joy than when I’ve had nothing.  I thank God for those moments and will take more if it means more of Him.

I have found myself in a time of overwhelming blessings. God is providing for my every need.  In some amazing ways – which makes life so much fun!!  From the basics, like food and clothes up to more inner stuff like being so consumed with His love that I am in a place where healthy relationships can thrive.  Each blessing comes with new life-lessons and I’m eager to learn and grow.

This Thanksgiving I am so thankful.  I am thankful for community – my family or I should  say families.  I am so blessed that have many.  I have my biological family, my Woo family and my friends who are truly family to me.  I am so thankful that God has put so many amazing people in my life.  I could not do this life without them – I don’t want to.

This week I will stop.  I have made a commitment to spend Thursday, Friday and Saturday NOT working.  An extended Sabbath of sorts.  Between school, working @ The Woo, and planning for the Straight Up Café and community center my time fills up fast.  And I’m looking forward to some down time with my families!

I have so much more to share with you – but it will have to wait!!!

I pray your Thanksgiving is full of thanks and praise!!! 

God is so good.
