Thankful for...(Day 2 & 3 combined)

This weekend has been filled with lots of time with friends.  I am so very thankful for our wonderful friends.  Jon and I have really come to realize the true meaning of friendship and who our real friends are during the 7 years we have been together.  We have made some new friends along the way and some of our old friends have faded out of our lives, but those who are still around are very important to us! This weekend we have had the opportunity to celebrate some of our dear friends daughter's 2nd birthday and we found out they are expecting a baby boy in April! We are so excited for them! We also watched two of our friends get married and helped celebrate at their reception. It was so much fun and we hope nothing but happiness for the newlyweds! The next few days we will have friends in town from Fort Worth that we haven't seen since January! We are super pumped and can't wait for them to meet Lillian!  As I said earlier, this weekend has been filled with lots of time with friends who I am very thankful for! 

These are a few of my favorite scriptures about friends...
Proverbs 18:24
Proverbs 17:17
Proverbs 12:26

Thankful for... (Day 1)

November seems to have become the month of thanksgiving, not just the  holiday, but realizing every day what we are most thankful for.  To start out this month of thanksgiving I am thankful for my life.  God has really blessed me with a wonderful family, great friends, a rewarding job, and many other things.  I have been through many things in the 29 years of my life and I'm thankful for each of them, good and bad, because it has made me who I am today.  Life may not always be what we think it should or go the way we want, but He has it planned out just the way it should be. 

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Thessalonians 5:18
