Gratitude for April 9th

It's almost been a month since I've posted last. Part of that's from a restless exhaustion. Haven't had ordered words. Haven't pressed through the wall into creativity. I should try to do that this weekend, try to create beauty. Beauty helps us come alive.

Since I really don't know what I should write about and since I don't have much time, how 'bout a gratitude post? I have much to be thankful for . . . always.

Thank You, Jesus,

(( 801 )) for daffodils on my desk

(( 802 )) for sleeping in the car

(( 803 )) for the way that music can heal

(( 804 )) for the small victory, the 2.8 run/walk with Sarah!! {Thank You!}

(( 805 )) for gentle hands of others

(( 806 )) for a possible summer job

(( 807 )) for a nice-sized grant

(( 808 )) for homework done, accomplishments

(( 809 )) for canceled classes

(( 810 )) for beautiful sunshine on a peaceful friday afternoon

(( 811 )) for not having to go anywhere

(( 812 )) for using me to love

(( 813 )) for shutting doors

(( 814 )) for letting me struggle through some things

(( 815 )) for a car that works

(( 816 )) for air swishing through my lungs

(( 817 )) for days when I'm really not altogether (maybe it helps others feel more comfortable)

(( 818 )) for messed up cupcakes

(( 819 )) for an on-campus job

(( 820 )) for sleeping in. delicious.

(( 821 )) for convicting me

(( 822 )) for times You grow my patience

(( 823 )) for the glimpses of hope in dad's health

(( 824 )) for dreams

(( 825 )) for stretching my mind

You never give up. Thanks. :)
