Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble


So this was my first Thanksgiving away from "home" and I must admit.....I wasn't very thankful. In fact, I complained.....alot. But throughout the day the Lord changed my heart. Clint kept reminding me of all the Lord has given us, and what a joy it is to serve in such an amazing church, and that He has blessed us with a child on the way, and a beautiful home to live in, and so many other wonderful blessings here. Things to be TRULY thankful for. And to top it all off, at the end of the day, we were having Thanksgiving dinner with some members in our congregation, and a couple of American missionaries, and I was just rejoicing at the fact that we had Christians to enjoy fellowship with. A guy in our congregation, Chris, brought up a point in one of Clints sermons this week....that in Luke 10 Jesus says that we should rejoice that our names are written in heaven. How cool is that promise? Something to definately ponder, and truly be thankful for, that our names are written in the Lamb's book of life, and that WE are His precious children. Amazing.



Too much stuffing and pumpkin pie? Nope. Just over 4 months pregnant! :) We find out in 2 short weeks if its a boy or a girl. I can still wear "normal" clothes, praise the Lord! Ha ha
