Thankful Thursdays: Week 1

5:00 AM

As some of you may know, I go to two churches.  I call it double churchin' it.  Anyways, I am a youth leader (until the fall) at Pacific Church of Irvine, and I am a part of the college ministry at Mariners Church.  Once in a while, the message will be on the same topic at both churches, and it just makes me so happy because I know that God is talking to ME.  And that makes me feel so special!

At both services, the main topic was being thankful.  I realized how often I take pretty much everything for granted.

At PCI we were talking about thanking God for the little things: eyes, ears, even taste buds!  If it wasn't for my sight, I wouldn't have the passion I do: fashion.  I also wouldn't be able to take in God's beautiful creations every day.  If it wasn't for my ears, I wouldn't be able to enjoy the worship music at church, which is the way I feel that I connect with God the most.  If it wasn't for my taste buds, I wouldn't be able to enjoy all the yummy food!

We were also challenged to make a list of 20 things that we are thankful for each day.  Now, I'm gonna be honest, I probably couldn't write a whole 20 things every single day.  That's why I'm starting this series, Thankful Thursdays, to write 5 things I'm thankful for once every Thursday with you guys.  Sometimes I might put an outfit post with the list, or sometimes I may share an inspirational photo, etc.

I just want to let you guys know that I'm really excited about this, and I can't wait to continue this.  My hope is that other bloggers would pick this up, as well as my readers!

So, here's my list:

  1. My friends ~ If God hadn't given me the friends he has, I wouldn't have as much joy as I do now!
  2. My mom ~ Spending time with my mom in San Francisco last week made me really appreciate her and the time I get to spend with her.
  3. My acceptance to FIDM ~ I seriously can't believe it's actually happening, and I'm so thankful that God has provided me with this opportunity!  I can't wait to see what will come from it.
  4. My cat, Jack ~ He's always there to comfort me.  I'm a pretty physical person, so when I'm sad I want to be held.  I think having Jack is God's way of physically comforting me and showing me physical affection.  I know, that probably sounds so weird, but it's true.
  5. Growing up in the OC, specifically Irvine ~ Recently, I've realized how lucky I am to have lived in Irvine, in the same house, since I was 1.  Other families that I know have moved so much and I just feel so lucky to have had a childhood living in a nice and safe neighborhood, and not be moving around so much.  It's just amazing.
What are you thankful for? This time, don't worry about letting me know in the comments.  Let GOD know :)
