Giving Thanks...

There are so many things that I am thankful for this holiday season.  I'm thankful for God, family, friends, jobs, life and so much more!  I'm reminded of a time in college (yes, during class) when I wrote out my blessings and the list went on and on!  I still have that list and look at it sometimes to remember what all God has done in the past.  I'm encouraged by knowing that God IS faithful and will continue to do amazing works in the future. 

I am especially thankful for the work God is doing in my life right now.  I have grown so much through our adoption experience.  It is no easy task to wait for God to provide the money that we need to move forward with the application and homestudy.  We went to our adoption orientation recently and I was ready to run out and get a loan so we could get started.  Thankfully I have a level-headed husband who reminded me that we aren't going to do that right now!  I am reminded on a daily basis that God is sovereign, which means He is in control of everything and I mean everything!  God has a plan for all of our lives and that is something I'm so grateful for!  He knows the beginning and the end.  I take comfort in the fact that my life, and our adoption, is in God's hands.
