reflections tonight

As I was sitting around tonight, postponing the workout I still need to do, I came across one of my really good friend's blogs I had forgotten about. Though she doesn't update it a ton, every post just overflows with thankfulness for the blessings in her life. She definitely does not take her husband or two sons for granted. A lot of the posts talked about God's unchanging nature and his faithfulness.

I have to say that my inital reaction was that it's easy to be thankful for God's blessings when you have a husband who loves you so much and two beautiful kids. And that it's not so easy to find your blessings when you're lonely on a Sunday night. But I guess God was working in my heart too because I soon realized that, though I dont have a husband or even a boyfriend to be grateful for, I have a lot of other things in my life that I am blessed with. And while the desire of my heart may still be marriage and while I still might carry love in my heart for one special person who does not return that love, I certainly am not lacking in things to be grateful for.

I am thankful for AMAZING friends, a Godly family, a job, a fun weekend in Charleston where I met new friends, a home and so much more...I am anxiously looking forward to the things God has planned for me.

"For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope." - Jer. 29; 11
