Thanksgiving '10

It’s this time of the year again!

What am I grateful for this year?
My 2009 list here
all the BLESSINGS great and small
that were beautifully unfolded this year…

1st Quarter:

Wedding anniversary trip to Gatlinburg, TN-
it’s our 3rd year!
T’was one freezing but extremely fun celebration. 
Looking forward to N more years of us…

2nd Quarter:

Graduation trip to Fairfield, IA- finally got my diploma! 
Had a great reunion with old friends from the university 
and loved to see my little church family there.

3rd Quarter:

Unexpected trip to the Philippines-
this may sound too ironic of me.
Yes, that’s right.
There’s no amount of pain reliever that can soothe what
I and my family went through
but hey, God is good! 
And He remains oh so good regardless
of the circumstances we’re in.
In everything, give thanks 
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you..
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
It is most difficult to comprehend His words
at this most difficult time in my life.
But who am I?
He is God and He knows what He’s doing.
And I choose to trust and hold on to His promises.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, 
to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (KJV) 

4th Quarter:

All-expense paid trip to Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN-
stayed in a nice hotel,
ate sumptuous meals,
drove around town
and all for free!!! 

My 29th birthday- another year to celebrate life. 

And a greener pasture to thread on… 
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 
saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, 
to give you an expected end. 
Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)

There goes the highlights. 
Hope your actual list of items
to be grateful for
is endless like mine.
