Thanksgiving

to intentionally take time to be grateful and to give thanks for all the good things that God has loaded me with.

O magnify the Lord with me.

To remember how I walked through dark valleys led by a kindly light; How I walked through fire unscathed; how I didn’t drown when Life overwhelmed me.

O magnify the Lord with me.

For old friends who are still alive, whose laughter makes my heart merry, whose tears clutch my heart. whose presence is like fine aged wine, smooth around the ages and mellow as it slips down my throat. Grateful.

For new friends, effervescent and loud. Dancing like tiny candle lights against a once dark future. Bringing new perspectives, freshness and bubbliest laughter into my life.

Exhilarating.

For family, belonging and affirmation. They dole it out like crunchy morsels of KFC. Succulent memories of hours spent doing life. The unending reminder that no matter how far or how long ago, some things don’t change.

Precious.

for husband and children whose patience and love is indescribable. the well that never runs dry and always available to refill. How awesome it is to be loved by you.

Sweetest.

For my King and the lover of my soul who has daily loaded me with good things because He counts me worthy of His love. Who generously dishes out love like hot steaming matooke and lavishes me with grace like smoked groundnuts.

Delicious.

O magnify the Lord with me.
