It’s Monday again. The start to a new week. I am thankful to start this week with renewed energy and desire to seek the Lord in the work I’ve been called to.
- Summer is my season. Party tanks, fruity drinks, long days, flip-flops, I love it. But, even this summer girl cannot deny how beautiful the leaves are when they’re changing colors. As I’ve driven to and from work each day, I’ve loved the changing colors of the leaves. It is sad when the trees have lost their leaves, only to reappear in the spring. It’s a faithful cycle.
- I made way too many cinnamon rolls on Saturday morning for breakfast with a friend. The upside – cinnamon rolls for snacks until they’re gone. Oh darn 😉 I love cinnamon rolls in the fall, some love Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I’m a fan of cinnamon!
- Gilmore Girls was one of my favorite television shows in middle school and high school and now I’m binge watching in on Netflix. I’m thankful that my bad fashion choices have not been recorded on video for everyone to watch and make fun of later. But, I am thankful that witty banter is timeless. #sorrynotsorry
- Families who adopt special needs kiddos are some of the most courageous I’ve ever had the privilege of meeting, and I get to work with them! I am beyond thankful for the ways that the families that I work with trust God and move forward in meeting needs of the world’s most vulnerable children.
I’m learning from Ann Voskamp that grace and joy flow from thankfulness. This week, I’m practicing thankfulness and remembering that every good gift is from above. Happy Monday!
