Hello Sweet Cheer: A Full Belly + A Full Heart


A Full Belly + A Full Heart

Happy Thanksgiving!

     I hope your belly was filled with lots of turkey and your heart was filled with lots of love!  I know I enjoyed the time I got to spend with my family and I'm sad this week is coming to an end!  Here are some pictures from our time.

I know it's a few days late but here are the three things I'm most thankful for!

1) I am thankful for the ability to have a relationship with Jesus Christ!  I'm thankful that he shows me the incredible weight of my sin, therefore revealing my great need for a Savior.  I'm thankful that God sent His perfect Son to die in place of me.  I am blown away and grateful for the perfection of my Savior and His willingness to bleed so that I might be able to commune with the Father.  I'm thankful that He was victorious over death by walking out of the tomb three days later!  Thank you Jesus for your great love for me and sacrifice so that I might live.

2) I am thankful for my precious family.  I'm thankful that I've been blessed with parents who love each other, siblings who love and protect me, and lots of extended family that support me!  It's such a blessing to have Christ-like marriages around me to look to as examples.  Their love for each other is beautiful to witness!

3) I am thankful for the little things.  I'm thankful for football and friends and school spirit.  I'm thankful for country music, late night summer swims and enjoying New Year's Eve with my best friend Lauren every year.  I'm thankful for the technology that allows me to stay connected to those far away from me.  I'm thankful for sweaters, scarves, and afternoon coffee.  I'm thankful for crunching leaves, falling snow and the rhythym of rain on the roof.  I'm thankful for all the things the Lord provides that bring me simple joys!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  Happy Weekend!
