27 Days of Thankful

I saw this post over at my in real life BFF's blog, Seriously and thought I'd like to join up!

I'm behind, so I'm just going to start today, on Day 3

Today I am thankful for my church.

A place where I can worship freely, bring all my 'issues' to the alter and LEAVE THEM THERE, unjudged.

I am thankful for a place where I have met some of my dearest friends - people I may never have met otherwise and they all live just minutes away.

I am thankful for a place that has changed my life dramatically - and the lives of my husband and children.

I am thankful for a place that accepts me for me - crazy past and all - realizes and understands that my past is just that - my past.

I am thankful for being loved unconditionally by complete strangers.

I am thankful to be given the privilege to worship without persecution and to use my talent and love for singing.

I am thankful for my church - a vessel in which I can be closer to my God and grow deeper in my relationship with Him.

What are you thankful for today?

I love this concept Natalie..... wonderful for the Thanksgiving season, to be able to remain focused on all that we need to be thankful for.

I am thankful for my church too. Although the worship part isn't as free as my old church, I'm still growing in Christ. I am thankful for God's forgiveness of my past and all the mistakes I've made. I'm thankful for my health and the love and support of my family. And.....I'm thankful I met you;-)

Oh Nat, I just love you! We haven't been going to our church home of about nine years for a while. I'm so torn for so many reasons about what to do. We visited the crossing years ago and I loved Greg but was a little overwhelmed by the size. I know we HAVE to make a decision and just go somewhere. With that said, I still don't know what to do. I will continue to pray for guidance for that anwser. Love you girl!
