Thankful Thursday: April 26th

Thankful today for…

1. Baan Sabai Lodge. Two and a half days of relaxation, refreshment and pampering at a cabin in the middle of nowhere do wonders for the soul. Dave and Irene took such great care of me, and I could not have asked for a better vacation. It was the perfect time away (although I could have stayed another week!), and gave me the space and rest to connect with the Lord and be rejuvenated for the rest of this year!

2. My Journals. While I was at the cabin I took some time to read back through all of the journals I have filled since I graduated college. It was encouraging and enlightening to see all that the Lord has taught me in the past 5 years! I love that I started journaling 14 years ago, and for all that they hold as a record of the Lord’s great work in my life through all the good and the bad.

3. Being unplugged. Another great thing about the cabin was that being in the middle of nowhere makes it very easy to not have a phone or computer. Glorious.

4. Getting to have a sleepover with the Just kids on Friday and Saturday. Love kids, and getting to hang out with those 4 is always a blessing. We had a “pizza picnic” on Friday night and watched Cars 2 in the living room, and I loved that they assumed I had never seen it, and so explained everything that was going on so I would understand. πŸ˜‰

5. Four year olds starting to grasp the gospel. My Sunday School class has been working all year on two main things – understanding who Jesus is and why He came to earth. It has taken 7 months of repeating the same things every single week, and they are finally starting to understand and repeat back to us that Jesus is God, and that He came to earth because he loves us and died on the cross for our sins. Hallelujah and amen.
