lovely things i’m thankful for…

– spending an hour at my bank and walking away with my own “real grown-up account.” i figured my savings account, which only my father can withdraw from (no, he’s not a control freak), wouldn’t be very convenient because of the distance between us, so now i have a debit card, a credit card, and a checking account. i won’t actually use two of those (credit and checking), but it all came together in a nice little student package. sweet.

– a job and a generous brother-in-law who i get my checks from.

– my brother-in-law’s message on Sunday. i really don’t have much control over my thoughts and my “inner conversation” throughout the day.

– the verse my mom shared at the end of Sunday School Class. i now have something specific i can bring to mind when i find my thoughts wandering.

– realizing once again that God is in control. all the little details i was stressing about are coming together and that makes me happy (and very thankful).

– a family dinner with my favorite people and listening to alison krauss while i clean up.

I turned around
Before I could run
I found you already settled down
In the back of my mind

You’re heart is pullin’
If I didn’t know any better
I’d be fallin’
Deeper and deeper it’s true
I’d hear it callin’
If I didn’t know any better
And I’d be in love with you

  1. sarah jean — i’m actually not. julia will be leading this year. i don’t think i’ll be able to make it since i’ll be finishing up all my last minute stuff before i leave on tuesday. i’ll see you sunday though! have a good time!
