I'm thankful for...
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, 8 days away! So today for chapel, we had our annual Thanksgiving chapel. We sing, and then start with the Seniors and Juniors, they share what they are thankful for, and then sing, and the Freshmen and Sophomores, and so on... To hear all that people are thankful for is fun to listen to. I listened to my friend say she is thankful for the Bible, I said I was thankful for prayer, a teacher said she was thankful for all of the students, and many more! So on went my day, and then I went to health class. It was about being thankful. We wrote on a piece of paper all we were thankful for, now obviously, we didn't write everything down, but I had a long list. Here are a few things I wrote down:
*trials- trials make us who we are. they make us stronger than we were, that is, if we are facing them with Christ on our side.
...and I listed A LOT MORE!
I have more than one Bible, and I take for granted that I have that. Most people don't have even one, and here I am with much more. I always have what I NEED. Need is a very strong word if you really think about it, we don't need much, do we? God is ALL we need.
It was cold again today. But it is November! (= Thanksgiving is coming so soon! It's crazy. Most of my family is coming in for the holiday, and it's crazy that one week from today, they will be here!! Or pretty close! I am so excited!
Well, I must get going. My best friend, whom I am living with, and my other best friend, and my older brother and I are going to watch a movie, or something tonight...! She will probably be here in a little bit, and I have things to do....
