11.25.10 - Giving Thanks

We have had a wonderful day of family, fun and food!  Dustin and I participated in the annual Dallas Turkey Trot this morning, and it was COLD!!  The cold front blew in just in time for race time, but we still managed to get going and run.  Then came our day of family and fun!  Compared to last year's, it was just as fun and memorable, but I did contribute a little to the cooking this year =)

I've thought a lot this Thanksgiving about what I am thankful for...and honestly, this post would be entirely too long if I mentioned everything!  My whole life is a perfect montage of thankful moments and memories.  God has orchestrated each minute of my life with such precision that I cannot help but be thankful for each precious moment that goes by.  Every time I look at my beautiful family, the ones here, far away, and those that have gone before us, I just get so overwhelmed by God's goodness and His grace.

Most of all, I am thankful for God leading me to this exact point in time, with those I love surrounding me and walking with me through this journey called life. Thank you to all of you who have been with us on this road, supporting us, encouraging us and offering your love and care for our family.

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."  Colossians 2:6-7
