Thankful Thursday, Take 141

Thanking God this week for...
  • the funny, surprising phrases Elijah says
  • opportunities to be outside in fresh air and sunshine
  • crockpots
  • opportunities to help women in need
  • the way Elijah fills in words in books and songs
  • my favorite Christmas CD (couldn't wait any longer to break it out...this one would be well-worth listening to year-round, but it's a special treat to save it for the holidays!)
  • singing in the car with Steve
  • the opportunity to hear an online friend's lovely voice this morning
  • successful new recipes this week: grilled brined turkey breast (makes you NEVER want to go back to the oven-roasted kind!) and turkey panzanella (great way to use the leftovers)
  • this month's Desiring God CD: one of Piper's advent poems!
  • Tim Keller's brilliant, mind-blowing gospel insights
  • Redeemer Presbyterian Church's generosity in putting many of his sermons online for free recently--including a wonderful one called "Work and Rest," which I listened to today
  • knowing the worst about me and loving me anyway
