5 things I’m grateful for this week

I’m struggling to find things to be grateful for at the moment, which is PRECISELY why I’m forcing myself to do this week’s 5 Things.

– Great books such as The Bible (obviously!), Third Culture Kids, Two Caravans, and The Power of a Praying Woman; all of which I’ve been reading recently and thoroughly enjoying.

– My new tattoo :) and my parents’ surprisingly calm and gracious reaction to it!

– The fact that even when I’m feeling bored and fed up in the place I’m in at the moment, it’s where God wants me to be for now and thinking about that gives me a renewed sense of purpose and destiny.

– The opportunity (again) to learn more patience. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard and frustrating at times but a lesson I need to learn. And will probably still be learning for the rest of my life!

– Our corner shop near the office doesn’t sell Skittles anymore and it might actually help to wean me off of them! (Don’t know if that’s something to be grateful for though?!)


5 things that I’m grateful for this week

– Being able to see my parents next week at TOAM, can’t wait. Also, they’re bringing me S’African mayonnaise…get in!

– My J.walk youth girls…the stuff God was doing in them last night during small group time astounded me. And to top it all off, we had one salvation too – yes please!!!

– Being able to get all my work done in time, not by my strength though!

– It’s Friday…’nuff said.


5 things that I’m grateful for this week

– Jumbo packs of Skittles on a stressful day

– The Wicker Park soundtrack; perfect for winding down to (although too much of it gets a bit depressing!)

– The opportunity to serve in something I never thought I’d have the guts to serve in

– Friends that make living in a foreign country just that much easier

– A God whose arms are always open, no matter what page I’m on

5 things that I’m grateful for this week

– Skittles (you can never, ever, ever have too many)

– Being able to see my Dad (South Africa) and my boyfriend (America) all in one week

– The opportunity to expand on and grow in the gifts God’s given me

– The beeeeautiful prospect of a holiday to Cyprus on Tuesday

– That even one person looked at my blog – can’t believe it?!
