Thankful Thursday, Take 8

I'm thanking God this week for...
  • blessing us with financial stability so that having to buy a new vanity and plumbing parts is inconvenient, but not a crisis
  • my husband who knows how to do all these home repair things
  • my super-soft turtleneck sweater, made even more enjoyable by the knowledge that though it's 100% cashmere, it only cost $19 because I bought it at an outlet in June a couple of years ago
  • caramel apple suckers
  • opportunities to meet neighbors
  • my GEMS girls and the joy and privilege of working with them each week
  • His LIFE-giving Spirit, IN ME
  • Christ's death on the cross in my place
  • technology and creativity that enable people to make brilliant things like this
  • the gift of music, and the ability to sad I think it would be to be one of those people who's absolutely tone-deaf
  • our church's upcoming women's retreat
  • date night with my hubby tonight
  • the security that comes with knowing that although troubles and pain are unavoidable in this world, I have hope and can take heart because Christ has already defeated satan and sin

What are you thankful for?
