Overwhelmingly Thankful

Leave a comment

This has been a whirlwind year.  I can hardly believe that it’s the end of November, and that soon 2013 will be here. As I reflect on the year, there’s so much that I have to be grateful for.

My life has changed dramatically this year. I have moved to a new (but familiar) place. I left my job and started something new. I got married. All incredibly wonderful things that have made 2012 a year of change and transition, setting me up on the path to truly move forward in 2013.

None of that could be possible without the love, support, and encouragement of some really good people. Preacher man (the hubs) and I always reflect about this around the thought of “people don’t have to be nice and they don’t have to be nice to you.” When I think of how I’ve experienced both people being nice and people being nice to me, it’s overwhelming.

This year I have truly witnessed and benefitted from people giving so unselfishly and sacrificially. So much so that all I can say is thank you, which is right, but also seems to be so horribly inadequate. But the truth is, I could NEVER repay what was offered and provided to me. There’s not a price you can put on some things, and even if I tried, it wouldn’t be a full representation of the gratitude I feel.

I am so overwhelmingly thankful to God for all these blessings that He has continued to provide for me and my family.  And for all of those who have blessed, encouraged, loved, and supported me this year; my prayer is that God continue to bless you and keep you, and that you are granted favor in all that you do.

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you, Lord, for all you’ve done for me!

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” – Numbers 6:24-26
