I just love my family and friends. This year I am so thankful for the way God rebuilds and restores and redeems the relationships in our lives. So thankful to see His love at work in my family and friends. So thankful for the people He's placed in my life to show me what it looks like to stay, to endure in love, to stick with me in the midst of trial - people who refuse to run or turn away from me when I'm a mess or a handful or a basketcase. So thankful for laughter and comfort and love that abounds. So thankful for a God who never leaves, who is closer than my breath, even when I feel far - He remains close. So thankful for Jesus. So thankful for life and life abundant. Even when I feel lost, God sees me. I'm so thankful for that. What are you thankful for?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4: 6-7)
