It’s struck me this week how much I have to be thankful for. Since I often bog you guys down with my woes I thought I would post something (Gasp!) uplifting this time. So, yeah, here are some of the amazing things God has blessed me with this week.
*I got 100% on all three of my assignments for my college class this week, plus I got a really nice response from my professor regarding a frustration I had with one of those assignments. After having had a somewhat frustrating week grade wise last week it was really a pleasant surprise to get online last night and see A pluses on all of my assignments.
*We got a new dog. God is amazing, can I just say that? We recently lost our dog of ten years, and had begun searching for a new one online through various shelters in our area, but had begun to get frustrated due to the stiff regulations and steep funds involved in rescuing a dog. But God provided. I’ve always wanted an Australian Shepherd but have never been able to afford one. Quite accidentally we found a beautiful male who was in our area, kid friendly, and free! He’s been here for over a day and is working out well thus far.
*I received a notice this week that I had made it into the top 45% of a poetry contest I entered, and thus am going to get published. For the most part poetry is a rather un-useful hobby of mine, so it was really cool to know that my poem is going to be shared with others, and that the judges thought of it as good. Plus I’ve been a bit word stuck as far as poetry lately so this is a real encouragement to me.
*I got to go on a short bike ride and enjoy the beauty of spring this week. Everything is just so green. There were blossoms on the trail, and the lake was a beautiful blue. God’s creation is wonderful.
That is by no means an extensive list, but hopefully it shall be a bit of a pick me up to help you through your day.
