I'm Having a Thought, Here

It's exciting and frustrating to be on the verge of a thought. Does that sound like something Winnie the Pooh would say?

I feel like God is about to reveal something "great and wondrous that you do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3) I have these niggling thoughts, then an affirmation of that thought, but there's nothing I can completely wrap my brain around yet. That's the frustrating part! All I know is that when things like this have happened in the past, it means a godly change in my life. That's the exciting part!

I was telling a friend at Dinner A'Fare (hey Lisa!) that I feel God has made my school year so much easier this year because everything else in my life is so crazy. I'm so, so thankful for that. I'm so thankful for a God who is sovereign over my life and knows exactly what I need. Not only that, but He actually cares enough to be actively involved in my life. He could let me continue as I am, but that's not His nature. Thanks be to God.

Other things I'm thankful for today:

*Himself upstairs, practicing drums for worship on Sunday.

*A brother and sister in conversation on the phone, not letting the miles separate them.

*Said brother and sister hanging up with "I love you"'s!

*Older sister wanting younger sister to go with her to the mall tonight.

*A brown-eyed gal able to join the sisters for adventure and loving it.

*A sweet comment left by Himself for Myself. What a day maker.

Life with the Lord really IS good. Isn't it?

I totally know what you mean...had one of those days myself today. Maybe I'll get to share some of those thoughts in my update email...if I can ever get around to writing it.
Love ya!

A certain brown-eyed gal is thankful for you, too!

And yes, that sounds just like Winnie the Pooh! Don't worry, though. Winnie the Pooh always ends with a good moral! You'll put your finger on it, yet!
