Thankful Thursday 8.22.19

Thankful Thursday is a rather ordinary day for me. As I look around, I pause to think about the moments in my day so far: busy, but not crazy. And to think about the events to come this evening: fun gatherings of celebrations with people I enjoy in my life.

Simple. Quiet. Exciting. Celebratory. Experiences ranging across the board. Each of these moments bringing life. Building memories. For all of it, I am SO grateful.

Getting to send love. Being blessed with receiving love. These are the treasures I tuck in both my heart and my memory as jewels that bedeck my life.

I have recently taken a couple of walks down memory lane coaxing tears of joy at the years and the memories I visit. On the brink of change, I am grateful this ordinary day and the chance to reflect. To remember. Both the good and the bad. To lift praise and gratitude for what was, what is not, and the unknown that will come. God was, is, and always will be there through it all.

As I draw near to him Galatians 5:22-23 reminds me “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” These fruits are delicious ways to enjoy life! I will keep turning my eyes to the Lord so He can keep molding me into the person He wants me to be. Because I know wherever He guides me, it is never ordinary – always extraordinary!

Blessings to you!
