30 Days of Thankful... Update 2

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

November 19

I am thankful for each movement of baby Bailey!!!! :)

November 18

I am thankful for family.  Not always easy or simple, sometimes messy, but the care that we always have for each other.  I love seeing them, even if it is only a few times a year.  Makes each moment more precious!

November 17

I am thankful for the opportunity to just have fun and enjoy life!  The Color Run today reminds me how to just enjoy myself with fun people and not waste my time worrying.

November 16

 As much as I love teaching my kiddos, I am thankful for the much needed break.  As a teacher, I am not sure if I could keep doing what I do if I did not have these breaks!

November 15

I am thankful for moments that break me and bring me to complete humility (as much as they hurt).  The kind that remind me that I should not do anything for my own glory, only for God’s glory. 

November 14

I am thankful for our small group.  It is a group that truly supports each other, pushes each other toward Christ, and has a heart for reaching St. Charles Parish.

November 13

I am thankful for BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministries).  This is a ministry that has the heart to reach and disciple college students in their relationship with Christ!  Not to mention where I met my husband, some of my best friends, and had some really fun times! Now it is where husband works and prepares to possibly do ministry with in the future.

November 12

I am SO thankful for this school year.  I would be lying to say that the last 2 years of teaching have been any sort of cakewalk, in fact they have made me question my choice to be a teacher.  Through this year (despite the many difficulties that have still come with it), my kiddos and my growth as a teacher, this year has been exponentially better.  I am so thankful that I go home feeling like I have had a good day even if it was difficult.

November 11

I am thankful for Vintage Church New Orleans and their heart for truly reaching people with the love of Christ, treating the church as a body and not as a building.

November 10

I am thankful to be a Georgia Bulldog.  I loved my experience there, how I grew as a person, and how UGA prepared me for the future… and I do miss it in Louisiana with all the LSU fans.  I just have to say, GOOOOOOO DAWGS!:)

November 9

I am thankful for much needed rest!  I must take more time to rest in the Lord!

November 8

  I am thankful for so many sweet girlfriends.  I am never without a godly girlfriend that I can grow with or have fun with!

November 7

I am thankful to have our own washer and dryer in our own apartment, and even a laundry room!  After using coin laundry for so long I can’t express how much I enjoy the convenience.

November 6

 I am thankful for our new apartment that feels like a mansion compared to where we have lived for the past 2 and a half years!  It amazes me how much you can appreciate something when you are given it after you learned to get by with less.  It really also makes me thankful for our old apartment and how it made us realize that we don’t need much stuff or space!

And from last time... November 5

I am thankful for my taste buds, good food, and the fact that I am enjoying it again :).
mmmm... crabcake :)
November 4
I am thankful for Bailey Drew, this precious miracle baby that is growing inside me right now!  

November 3

I am thankful for our first baby that would have been due a month from today.  I am sad that we never got to meet this precious child, but thankful that we will meet this precious one again in heaven :).

November 2

I am really thankful for my wonderful husband.  Really the past almost 6 years we have been together, including our almost 4 years of marriage have been amazing... I am so blessed!
Enjoy our first picture EVER together... we weren't even dating yet... and I think Leah was somehow cut out of this picture LOL

November 1

I am thankful for the unexpected moments that I get to spend in intimacy with the Lord.

What are you thankful for today? :)
