Thanksgiving Challenge

Thanksgiving Pictures, Images and Photos

In honor of the approaching Thanksgiving holiday I have decided to challenge myself. For each day I am going to blog about the things I am thankful for. Because today is the 10th I will have to make up with 10 things I am thankful for. 

  1. I am thankful for the undeserved grace of God--I do not deserve anything that God has done for me. His grace saved me. 

  1. I am thankful for my stepmom giving me a job while I finish working on my Masters--Finishing up my internship is pretty much a full time job. Having a job that I make my hours is so helpful. 

  1. I am thankful to be almost done with my masters (Graduation is in May)--I am 27 and have been in college what seems like forever. 

  1. I am thankful to have passed my comprehensive finals--I took my finials in October and pasted; now all I have to do is finish my internship. 

  1. I am thankful for my health--I know so many people that have cancer right not, and I am so glad that I am healthy (even if I need to lose a few pounds).

  1. I am thankful for the chance to learn from my past--I have made a lot of mistakes in the past, but I have learned a lot. I hope to use my past to help people someday. 

  1. I am thankful for new friends--I recently moved home, and most of my old friends have moved on. I joined a life group with my church, and have made some awesome new friends. 

  1. I am thankful for Jesus and all he has done and will do--I trust my Savior with my life. He saved me from my past, and my life if full of blessings. 

  1. I am thankful for my dad and stepmom letting me come home to save money--Don't get me wrong, it is hard to come home. I am so glad that I have a place to live with no rent. It helps on the stress level and the grades. 

  1. I am thankful for a chance to go to Mexico to share the love of Christ--In January I am going to Juarez, Mexico on my first official mission trip and my first official time out of the country. 

This is my first ten (in no particular order). Stay tuned for more.
