I Am Thankful, 2019

It’s been a long year. (People have always said that time flies as you get older, and I had started to see time speeding up a bit in my late teens and early twenties. Then 2018 and 2019 came along and set me back, so I guess I’ll have to start over. But I digress…) It’s been a kinda hard year in some ways, and I’ve hardly had a grateful heart every day.

But IĀ am grateful to be alive, abiding under the shadow of the One who holds my breath in His hands.

And to list some specifics, I am thankful this year for

  • My book published! A dream come true.
  • A church I love.
  • Cool opportunities to sing with my church choir outside the church walls.
  • The fact that Middle Tennessee is finally feeling like home.
  • A vacation in the Smoky Mountains, our first since the fire in 2016.
  • A visit to St. Augustine Florida.
  • Fun movies. I’ve acquired a couple new favorites this year.
  • Sleep. (Don’t worry: I’m not becoming a grown-up. Just an adult.)
  • Two of the best sisters a girl could ask for.
  • Friends who actually seem to love this slightly crazy writer.
  • The Word of God, without which I wither in a very painful way.
  • The fact that God does meet me where I am, and loves me unconditionally.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  1. Darcy, you are such a blessing to me. Thank you for being my friend beyond my critiquer. You do such a great job at both. šŸ™‚ And I’m so glad Tennessee is finally feeling like home. It’s a beautiful place. Not as beautiful to me as Texas, mind you, but beautiful nonetheless.

    Having moved as many times as I have in my life, I realized long ago that my Lord is always with me, no matter where I may be. He always will be. With you, too.

    1. Thank you so much, Sharon! I’m grateful for our friendship! ā¤

      It's so good to have the Lord with us always. And, truth be told, any place on this beautiful planet is only a temporary home anyway. šŸ™‚
