Things I'm Thankful For

I'm thankful for:
-My hope and salvation in Jesus Christ (no matter what may happen in the World).
-My family and friends.
-A new job working with my mother-in-law .
-Wedding Showers, without them, we would have nothing for our home.
-My husband, Jonathan.
-A great church family and leadership for the past four years.
-A great network of blogging friends who love Jesus. Your blogs help keep me accountable as I see you living a life that honors God. What a joy it is to know that you ladies are there :D
-Soft throws to stay warm in.
-Memories of birthday parties at "Showbiz", now it's Chucky E Cheese.
-The Internet (and blogs :D )
-Pop (Soda) that burns my throat at the first drink.
-Reruns of Little House on the Prairie. This show can teach us so much about how some things
should be.
-Both sets of my parents helping make my wedding dreams come true.
-My "Granny" who put up with me the last four years and let me live with her. I've learned so much from her.
-Mrs U., she taught me as much about homemaking, family life, and a relationship with God that she could cram into the past four years.
-5 years of college education without being brainwashed (some of you will get my point :D ).
-The lessons God teaches me through other people.
-Sweet Tea
-Wonderful parents who worked hard, were always good natured people, and helped me make
wonderful childhood memories.
-Our landlord painting our apartment a beautiful light tan with clean white trimmings, beautiful.
-A soft bed to sleep in.
-Wonderful memories with my grandparents. Those gone on, and those still here.
-A washing machine and dryer, a vacuum and Orange Glo. The best parts of keeping a home.
-Chocolate
-Clean water to drink.
-Knowing God is in control, the government is not.
-"Hug Times" with my Granny.
-Sunshine on a cold day.
-My blogging friends. I consider anyone whose blog I adore, and those who read mine as my friend. I really call you my friend :D
-God's Word that is always available to safely read.
-America....where I can safely read my Bible and go to church.
-Great books that get me thinking, including: Stepping Heavenward, Lies Women Believe, and
The Excellent Wife
-Firecracker Chicken Wraps from Long Horns.
-Thanksgiving. There's no gifts to open, just fellowship to enjoy.

"Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world,
That fight for our love, and our passion,
As our eyes are open wide and on you.
Grant us the privilege of your world view,
And may your kingdom be, what wakes us up, and lays us down."

-TobyMac featuring Kirk Franklin, "Lose My Soul"

More Wedding Snapshots.....

I really miss blogging, but for now I figured I'd share some of my favorite wedding snapshots of my wedding day. These photos were taken by friends and family and I just LOVE them! I hope to be back blogging VERY soon!

Jonathan with my giggly bridesmaids.




Here we were riding over to the "photo shoot" with the photographer.
Great times!

I miss you all!
