Where has the time gone?

I can't believe its been a week since I last posted and that Thanksgiving has come and gone. The days just fly by!

We had a special Thanksgiving with both sides of the family (one on Thursday, one on Friday). But I think my favorite time of all were the conversations we had around our own table. One morning we were talking about what we were thankful for and Emma said, "I'm thankful for freedom...and my warm home to live in." The conversation that followed was priceless. She always surprises me with the depth of her heart.

And because I don't want to be remiss in not sharing my own heart of gratitude, here are a few things I am thankful for this year.

* My marriage. Tim is an amazing and wonderful husband. I am so blessed to be married to him.
* My children. I am so grateful for the joy that Emma and Nate bring to our home. We are blessed to have two healthy children.
* My salvation and God's grace. Where would I be without my Savior? I shudder to think...
* Family & friends. God has blessed us with some very special relationships.

Thanksgiving has become a mile marker in our lives—and one day I hope to share more on that—but for now I want to say that God has brought Tim and I into a deep intimacy with Him. He has taught us what it means to ask Him for our daily bread and to allow Him to sustain us each and every day. He is our portion.

To God be the Glory...Great things He has taught us...Great things He has done.
