This month, Kiki and Jess are hosting The Circle link up. Kiki described this month's theme this way:
While I know that most of us are not born with the gift of comedy (ahem, me), Jess and I have also realized that it's of equal importance to write sincere thank you notes to those people and things around you that you're thankful for, too. Think of them as little notes of love or laughter. You take your pick!
I'm going the serious route...
Thank you God for knowing me and making yourself known to me. Though I have to fight to keep my eyes on You, the sight that you have given to me is precious to me. For all these things that I'm about to mention, I am grateful, because I know they are meant to point me back to you.
Thank you John Piper and Desiring God for delighting in helping others come to see and savor God. My life began to look a lot different after you taught me that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him." The pursuit of God IS magnificent. Thank you.
Thank you Mom for following so hard after God. I love you!
Thank you to my siblings for letting me be "Sissy" for all these years...I love our talks, our laughs, our games, and watching each of you grow and try things!
Thank you BBC for taking great books and ideas and turning them into lovely series (I cannot figure out how to make that word plural).
Thank you Twinings for making such nice tea. I've really enjoyed them over the last few years.
Than you Blogger for making a way for people to write and connect over even the silliest things.
Thank you God for all the variety You've put in my little world lately...I'm thinking especially of the flowers coming up in my bulb garden, the warm and sunny days, and days like today that bring a dose of rain and dreariness.
Thank you READERS it's fun to know that you're reading along. I especially love when you comment and tell me about the place where you blog!
What are some things you're THANKFUL for?
Maybe you'd like to join in the link up this month?
