Choosing Gratitude

For our women's bible study, we got the book Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Honestly, I didn't really want to read about being thankful to God, I would rather study His word and learn more closely about a book in the Bible.

But then, I have a day like today, where I can be nothing but thankful.

Today I woke up. I'm alive. 
I'm healthy.
My home is safe.
My husband is amazing.
I am loved.
I have food in my kitchen.
And clean drinking water.
I was able to pray without being prosecuted.
I was able to see a prayer answered.
My friends and family love me.
I am truly blessed.
I see the beautiful things in my life, and the things that God created.
Most of all, I know God is with me. 
And with all that, I am thankful.
So very thankful.

A Little Date Day

Travis got home earlier than I was expecting. I was upstairs by the time he got home, so he lured me downstairs by suggesting, "Let's get a brownie." {Who would seriously argue with that?} When I made my way downstairs, these beauties were sitting on the kitchen counter.

Aren't they so beautiful?!!!!! 

I'm blushing just thinking about how wonderful Travis is and how truly blessed I am!

We have been trying to enjoy the weather as much as we can before it turns to cold and white stuff falling from the sky, so we decided to ride our bikes to a favorite restaurant near by. 

We enjoyed an incredible lunch with each other with this beautiful view. It was a perfect lunch date.
