Blessing, Joy

joyfullyblessed by family and friends


the past few days have been AMAZING.  I’ve gotten to catch up with a lot of friends and family.  I’ve gotten to hang out with friends from high school and see relatives that I haven’t seen in years.  It is truly a blessing to realize how many amazing relationships God has placed in my life.  Even the simple things bring SO much joy like painting my toes with a friend (even when I don’t think I”ve ever painted my toes in my life) 🙂 or getting a hug from a little kid at church.  As I’ve taken the time these first 7 days of 2009 to stop and look at the blessings in my life, it overwhelms me and who knows what I’m still not seeing.  It almost disgusts me to think how much joy I’ve been missing out on by not constantly looking at the many blessings in my life.  But that’s okay, I could never count them all anyway… God’s just that big.

Anyway, I’m back at school now which oddly feels more like home than home (mainly just because it’s kind of “my” space and it’s been more like 2 weeks of vacation rather than “going home” even if vacation was at my home where I’ve grown up.  But yea, it’s nice to be back.  I’m slowly getting things put away and cleaned up… ready for RAs and residents to get here and for 2nd semester to start.  I plan on spending a lot of time chillin with God over the next day or so and really allowing him to show me all the blessings around me.  Here are some more of the blessings and joys I listed for today in my journal:

  • time with relatives, especially cousins I haven’t seen in a while
  • reminencing
  • e-mails with friends
  • daisies
  • things on sale
  • talking online with friends
  • seeing people back at school
  • watching a good basketball game
  • time to rearrange and clean
  • remembering Christmas again and all it’s joys and blessings as I took down the decorations
  • heating pads in an apartment that has been left without heating on for 2.5 weeks
  • heaters when so many people in the world don’t have homes
  • Psalm 34

Love always,
Joyfullyblessed <><
