In Everything, Give Thanks

23 Nov

I’m so excited for Thanksgiving, and although I’m typically not too reflective about the holiday, I think I’m beginning to sing a different tune. It’s such a blessing to look back at the year and think about some things to be thankful for.

When the year started, I never would have expected to be starting my own business – taking a risk and putting it all out there for anyone and everyone to see. You never know until you try, and I’ve been inspired by the couples who have let me be part of their special days. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to continue to grow as a wedding planner and can’t wait to see what 2012 brings.

I’m so thankful:

  • to be saved by grace. The love and mercy of Jesus amazes me every day and I am humbled to know Him.
  • for my husband. I am continuously blown away by his selflessness, love and constant support of what I do and who I am. He even likes to cook (I’m working on it!) and am so thankful for his willingness to serve and lead our family.
  • for family. I am so glad to have family, in-laws and extended family that are a joy to share life with. Thank you for your listening ears, open arms and unconditional love that is extended on a daily basis.
  • for friends. It is a blessing to realize that there are people in life who may not technically be family, but might as well be. I treasure these friendships.

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
