|So excited about CiCi's Pizza!|
I have days like today when I am overwhelmingly thankful for my life, the people in my life, and the decisions that have brought me to this. exact. moment.
I grew up in a Christian home. For most of my life, I went to the same church. In fact, it is really the only church I remember ever going to until college. My favorite thing that I learned there and the thing that I repeat to EVERYONE (Because I can kiiiiind of be a broken record and it also applies to. well. everything.) is:
obedience brings the blessing

I honestly believe that God blesses obedience.
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
I am beyond thankful for where I am. I am a people pleaser to the core. I have wanted the approval of people (and I honestly still do this to an extent) all my life. As far as college goes, it wasn't until I had really set my priorities straight and figured out how to reach that goal that I could get out from underneath the pressure to stay where I was.
|The best day of my life.|
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I have ventured away from my subject and talked about things that weren't in my mind to blog about originally, BUT! The point is that I am thankful. I'm thankful to serve a God who is loving, good, and faithful. I'm thankful to have a husband who is patient, kind, and funny. I'm thankful to have 2 incredible families who are supportive and God-fearing.
I am thankful for my life.
Have you thought about the things in your life that you are thankful for? What are they? If you haven't thought about it for a while, do it! It might just change your perspective on things.
