Being content and thankful..

Well, I know it has been a long time since I wrote the last blog. My computer crashed and died. So, I got a new computer during black Friday! Yeah I know I was one of those people stand in a long line early in the morning but it was worth it.
I have been doing well, I guess. Nothing much has happened since my last blog. I have just been working and doing little things in between work. I can’t believe that it will be Christmas soon. I don’t have any of my Christmas presents yet. My computer was my Christmas present to myself. This year has gone by. This time last year I had a lot on my mind. I can say that things are better this time than last year but I still am not where I wanted to be.
This past week was thanksgiving. There is so much that I am thankful for. Sometimes in our life we get so overwhelmed with the thing that we don’t have in our life that we forget to thank the Lord for our blessings. God has truly blessed me with the best friends in the whole world. They have been there for me through the good and the bad. There have been days that I would call them and say I just need to vent and I just need you to listen and they do. There are times when I need them to meet me on a Friday night because I don’t like staying at home on a Friday night by myself. I couldn’t have been blessed with any better friends in my life. My best friend Erin is across the world right now and through all that she has going on she finds time when I call her to just listen.
This morning in Sunday school, Mr. Napp showed a video that really spoke to me. It was on silence. How there are so many times that we don’t make time to just be still in the silence and listen to God. I’ll be honest with you. I don’t like silence at all. I feel alone in the silence. I feel as if no one is there for me and I feel incomplete. This year living myself I have had my good days and bad days. I have had days that when it gets too silent in the house that I will just turn on some music.
This week as hard as it will be for me, I am going to sit and be still. I know that if I do sit and be silent that the Lord will speak to me and show me that there is nothing to be afraid of. He is never going to leave me alone; he is there with me even in the silence. Until next week I challenge you this week to take time out this week to just be silent and allow the Lord to speak to you.

  1. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving sweetie. Congrats on the new computer! Sometimes we have to do something nice for ourselves, huh? I can't believe you did the Black Friday thing, though!! I can't do the crowds... I get to nervous and stressed out when that many people are crowded into one place! Anyway, have a great week and I hope to see you soon. Love you :)
