Giving Thanks

I'm sitting in my big, cozy chair with my feet up and warm slipper boots on. The weather is chilly and cloudy, I'm crossing my fingers for snow. It's one of those days where I want to do absolutley nothing but wrap up in a blanket and dream. But life is calling my name and I can't ignore it right now..maybe tomorrow :)

Yet as much as I want to just escape for a little while God keeps reminding me of all the things I have to be thankful for, the things He's blessed me with. I am so thankful for the people that are in my life in this season, and for the people who have been apart of my life for years. It blows my mind to think of where I was this time a year ago. I was broken, hurt and torn. I didn't know what to do or where to go. I can remember praying for friends, good friends, that would be uplifting and encouraging and just...there. Friends that wouldn't leave when things got tough. I never dreamt that God would place these people in my life that I call my best friends.

It's about that time to fill you in on the happenings of my life. Well nothing super excited has happened lately. Oh wait, duh, I'm retarted. I went to Vegas last weekend!!! Meg is turning 19 and her dad, who happens to live in Vegas, bought us tickets to Cirque Du Soleil show. Saying it was amazing would be an understatement! I was blown away by the performance! It was fantastic :) Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend.

**Only 18 days til I'm 21**

My mom and I were talking today about politics (I know, shocker, right?). We were talking about the things that each of our presidential candidates are standing for and how so many Christians are still choosing to vote for Obama even though he supports abortion and gay marriage. A few minutes later God reminded me of a vision He had given me at a winter camp about four years ago. I told my mom and guess what she said? "Put it on your blog!" So this, of course, is for my mom and all of her blogging buddies since I don't have any of my own yet :)

It was in the middle of worship at our winter camp and, as usual, I was just lost in the presence of God. I had my eyes closed and saw a door that was on the left side of the stage open up and countless children started walking out. They were every color and size and darn they were cute! They filled up the stage and I saw Jesus standing there and watched as they ran into His arms, laughing and dancing as He scooped all of them up and just loved them. I heard in my spirit that these were all the children that had been aborted or born stillborn.

So think about that when you think of voting for the man that will make abortion ok.

My vote is for righteousness and LIFE.
