3 gifts from your savior

Thankful for a grace-filled Savior, and for the moments where I humbly receive his grace through the flesh-and-blood, dear people in my life who are treasures to me.

Thankful for the words of Ann Voskamp during a gray season: You will be experienced as a blessing — to the extent you have first experienced yourself as blessed.  These words are slowly coming to my mind time and time again, when I am unsure of myself or feel weak or incapable.  God has poured out love and blessing, and I want to soak it all up like a sponge.

Thankful for a Thanksgiving Psalm:

Psalm 100:

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
     Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Thankful that we are his sheep, first and foremost.  Fun facts about sheep: there are over 1 billion sheep in the world, sheep and shepherds are mentioned 247 times in the Bible, and sheep have best friends. One very special animal, if you ask me. 7035673575_e01c506b96_z
