I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I'm glad it's here. By far my favorite holiday! I am leaving after work tonight and heading up to PA until Friday.

I just thought that I'd take a moment to list the things that I am really thankful for.

First of all, thanks to God, my Savior. The things He has been doing in my life are just phenomenal. There really is no thanks or praise enough for Him.

Secondly, I am thankful for my family, of course. Sometimes I have to make decisions that are not "normal" or "logical" but recently, I have not been attacked from those decisions. I am thankful for that. But really, I am just thankful to have such a loving family. Both immediate and extended family.

I am also EXTREMELY thankful for my new church home, New Life Christian Church. I am still extremely excited to be a part of such an amazing Church. It's a place that God is really doing some amazing things and it is absolutely great to be a part of it. The support I have had from them is phenomenal and I love that they are letting me serve as well. Without New Life, I would not be where I am today. Actually, I probably would have gave up on VA and been back in PA by now. But there is no doubt that God led me to the right church and that He wants me there.

A big thanks to my new friends, Kim, Carl, and Nate.. Cant say how great it is finally having good Christian friends that I can hang out with. It's an amazing feeling.

And of course, Becca. Who has really shown me a lot in the last few days. It's amazing the connection God has made and I am thankful that she was willing to listen to what God had to say and bring it to me. It's amazing the friendship that God is building and I am very thankful for that.

I'm thankful for Eli I'm so glad that God has allowed me to be in his life, even if it doesn't mean seeing him every week. I hope that I can make an impact on his life the way that he has made an impact on mine.

Believe it or not, I'm thankful for Carpathia : There may have been issues but I definitely see them trying. And above all, it is a job and it is paying (most of) the bills.

Of course, I'm thankful for every single person on this list as well. Your prayers and support has been amazing. Maybe its true that I need to rely on God to get me through things but its nice to have people praying for you and cheering you on. Makes things a little easier :

I want to just keep going on and on because there is honestly so much that I am thankful for but I think I have bored you enough. I really hope that each one of you takes a moment to thank God for what He has given you. Remember this holiday is all about giving thanks so make sure those around you know that you are thankful for them and for things they have done, etc.

Again, I wish everyone and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving. God Bless!
