Today was a busy day, but it was a good day; aujourd’hui, je suis reconnaissante pour mon classe de peinture. We did not speak french during my class time, but I was curious to see if I could still construct any sentences in that long forgotten foe. I was able to continue working on St. Thomas, and with every stroke I am reminded more and more of Asterix and Obelix, which happen to be french.
Today I was thankful for being able to attend a humbling service at Keller Park Church, and being reminded that we must not neglect any areas of our spiritual lives, but grow akin to the voice of the Spirit and follow where it leads. I was later blessed to talk with my parents and know that they are always there to remind me to cling to God and encourage me to move forward. I was also extremely thankful for Stephen. I am amazed at how he is able to keep up with me in my awful days. I am incredibly blessed to have a boyfriend who cares for me and who shows that care even in the small pleasures of life. Without the ice cream he got me, I don’t know how I would’ve been motivated to continue knitting my scarf.
Even though I have missed several days of posts, there have been things I have been thankful for each day. Nonetheless, I will not try to make up for the days I missed. Today, the weather was really slushy! So I stayed at home for a big chunk of the day and knitted. I was also thankful to go to the grocery store and get some lip balm for my chapped lips.
