Happy Thanksgiving

I am taking a blogging break, and hope to resume blog activity sometime after Nov. 28. I have a major paper due on the 28th on the social signigicance of the nuclear family in Genesis 2-3. Pray for me!
In the mean time, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Most of all, I am thankful for the Savior’s love. His free, unlimited and unfailing love. Jesus you set me free, and continue to pursue me when I stray from the right path. May I reflect your presence in this world to all I meet, and be as persistent in the pursuit of those you miss the most. I know what it’s like to be lost, and I hope that those that have the emptiness within them, can be found by you and experience the life-changing, warm embrace of God’s amazing grace.
I am thankful for my wonderful life. Jen you teach me more about what grace and patience look like lived out in a life in love with Jesus.
I am thankful for my precious little princess’s. Rachel and Kenzie, loving you two has taught me what it means to be loved by God.
I am thankful for the teens and parents I serve. From heartache to joy, we are on a journey together. Thanks for letting me share Jesus with you.
I am thankful for family. Aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents who have helped make growing up in our family a safe, fun place.
Mom and dad, I am not sure how often you frequent my blog, but I love the both of you and well, I owe you so much. Thanks for your example of faithfulness in marriage for 30 plus years and for all that you have done to raise Matt and I, and the way you shower my daughters with love from afar.
Matt, I couldn’t of asked for a better brother.
Don and Brenda, I thought I was blessed to have been born into the family of my birth, thank you for accepting me with open arms into your family. I am looking forward to turkey and pie, and football this weekend.
I am thankful for all of you, whoever you are who stop by my little corner of the blogosphere. Thanks for reading and God bless.

    Happy Thanksgiving, a day late, but hey…I really love that passage of scripture your paper is on, it is so packed with great messages and implications for us today, enjoy writing that one, it should be neat (if papers can be neat?). Blessings to you and your family!

    I know this is way late, but late is better then never.
    Im so thankful for you as well. I wish I was closer to all my cousins, but life isn’t always what you “want” it to be.
    Love you all much, and send kisses and hugs to the girls!
