Thankful Thursday -- one day late

So, I've had an awful week this week. There was an awful, awful tragedy that happened at my workplace. Having to deal with things is a not-so-great part of my job. And it's not over.

In spite of this, or maybe even more so BECAUSE of this, I want to focus on things I'm thankful for.

1. I am thankful for both of these Bible verses. They have both been in my head and heart this week when I didn't know what to do, what to say, how to feel...

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave
you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made
perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my
weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

2. I am thankful for those that love me... friends, family, and "work family" have all pulled together this week for me and for whomever else needed it.

3. I am thankful that I have something fun to look forward to tomorrow... A Fancy Nancy birthday party, no less. I'm going to Fancy the rest of those Nancies right out of there!!!

What are you thankful for???
