Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

My Dad's B-day!

 
My dad's birthday was a few days, I guess more like a couple weeks ago now and we celebrated as always...special dinner and dessert.

Cake time!









 
We did the usual, a walk on the beach, dinner, and dessert.  Last year we did have a surprise party for him, but this year it was just us.  We had a nice and fun time together.
I am so thankful for him, with all we have been through and all he has been through he is such a good example to us all.  Of what a slave of the Lord should look like, of what a husband and father should look like. We have all grown so much closer to God and to each other in these last five year.  Life brings challenges, heartaches, sicknesses, sorrows-trails. Things that make us lean on Christ, because without Him we would be nothing, we can do nothing and would always be discouraged, searching and striving towards something, that when we get, it isn't enough-we want more.  We can only be satisfied in Christ.
Sooner or later everyone will realize this and I know that my dad has and that he has taught us this so many times.  That no matter what we do, whether it be hard or easy do all to the glory of God.
I just wanted to share and encourag and dad has been my inspiration today!
Thank you and...don't forget to be AWESOME!
