Thankful Thursday, Take 102

Thanking God this week for...
  • the opportunity to do a blog giveaway (don't forget to enter!)
  • the fun "playdate" Elijah and I had today with a friend and her kiddos
  • the giant bag of kids' clothes and giant box of kids' books she sent me home with
  • getting to hear Tim Keller speak last night
  • the opportunity to get to know a new couple on the way there and back
  • confirmation in a difficult decision
  • outside affirmation of a gift/dream He's been rekindling in me
  • pretzel-turtle candies
  • patience that did not come from within myself
  • a yoga video that provides great exercise without all the weird woo-woo stuff
  • an opportunity to serve and encourage Steve when he had a bad day, when he so often serves and encourages me
  • giving me the grace to choose joy in frustrating circumstances
  • understanding friends
  • e-mail
  • sausage rigatoni
  • our tradition of Steve making breakfast on Sundays
  • snow
  • forgiveness from a friend I hurt long ago
  • His fathomless, extravagant love

I'd like to hear more about the "outside affirmation" of the gift He's rekindling in you. If you would prefer to email, I'm all for that, too.
