This week has been stressful….that may be an understatement. It seems like all of my professors want to cram as much material in as possible before the exams, and I am most certainly not a fan. Between assignments and studying, I was overwhelmed these past few days and I felt tired and drained. But, I did title this post “Thankful Thursday” and that was no mistake. As I sit here at my computer, I am overwhelmed with peace, despite everything this week. Peace from God that has led to my thanksgiving.
Today I’m thankful for…
Texts from friends saying they were praying for me.
Sweet hugs that were shared.
Sleeping in on Tuesday morning.
A surprise letter of encouragement from my friend Lacy.
The Advent plan I started this week.
That feeling after my orgo test was done.
Date night silliness including a thrift store run for ugly Christmas sweaters.
Some awesome time with God reminding me of His power through all situations.
Only two weeks separating me from winter break!!
“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” ~Psalm 61:2
