Thankful

So everyone is writing thank-you posts, blogs, and tweets every day. 21 Days of Thankfulness. I havn't jumped on the bandwagon for 2 main reasons:

1. EVERYONE is doing it. I just felt a rebellion rise up in me to not be a follower.

2. I truly, deeply to the core of my being, believe that we are called to act like Thanksgiving is around the corner all year long. Every Day. All Day.

But, I am convicted this morning about a few things:

1. I am not all day every day Thankful. Sometimes I am fearful. Sometimes I am prideful.

2. Thankfulness drives away fear and pride. It instills healthy fear of God. My provider of all.

So, here I am a week and a couple days late, jumping on the band wagon. I am going to use this holiday, my favorite holiday, as an opportunity to practice what I should be better about every day, all day.

Today, I am thankful for:

1. My Jesus. My  Redeemer. Who saves me, loves me, delivers me and draws me to himself. I am a gross, ugly, stinky sinner. But because of his sacrifice, he gets glory from turning me to him.

2. My Studly Beast of a Man, Kyle Grier Wiley. My best blessing. My favorite blessing. My best friend. He is an amazing daddy and incredible husband. He loves and leads sacrificially. And gosh, he's handsome.
