Multumesc...Merci...Gracias...

"John replied, 'No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.'"  John 3:27 NLT

There is something astounding in that simple statement of John the Baptist.  Stopping to think about all the God has given me in the way of blessings, answered prayers, ideas, dreams, family, friends...it amazes me.  I am humbled that He gives so freely, time and time again...and always when I need it most.
The journey of the past couple of years has been more than I could have ever asked for...definitely, without a doubt, more than I could have imagined. 
The journey continues, although it is unclear where the next turn will lead.  Whatever is next, I know that it holds what God so awesomely and graciously gives.  Nothing comes without His hand offering it.  I pray for the wisdom to be a good steward of His gifts...taking nothing for granted. 
In this, the season of thankfulness, I am without fitting words to express how much it means to me to have been given such gifts...
Alaska.
Encouragement.
Understanding.
Laughter.
Joy.
Friendship.
Forgiveness.
Faith.
Hope.
Love.
So I simply say, "Thank you."
Thank you for everything.
