Give Thanks: Part IV

November 28, 2010

Once upon a time in a land filled with ribbons and bows, there lived a pretty little girl who dreamed in white: white lace, white horses, white dress, and white roses. Her every daydream, every night dream, every thought and idea flowed freely in a sea of white. “Oh, to be married one day to my very own prince charming,” she would say. The dreams grew bigger with every passing year. With all her might, she dreamt of becoming a bride in white.

How do you think this sweet little dream ended for this sweet little girl?

I wouldn’t know. I’m not her. Don’t get me wrong. I always hoped to be married someday, but my dreams did not involve fairytale weddings or fairytale princes. I just wanted to be married, to be a good wife, to love a good husband. Luckily, that dream came true.

On my last day of thanksgiving, I want to say how thankful I am for my husband. He is loving and gentle. He is silly and wise. He is my best friend. I couldn’t have asked for a better gift from God.


I appreciate your patience the past few weeks as I have put into words those things that so rarely get expressed, the things I am most thankful for. Happy month of Thanksgiving!

Word of the Week: Thanksgiving

Word to the Wise:  “Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.” Isaiah 12:4-5.

Disclaimer: While I chose not to finish the fairytale above, if this girl is you, please feel free to finish it for me. I would love to know the ending.
