I've decided that I AM going to start doing this weekly post of thankfulness!!! The big sis said she likes reading these thankfulness posts...therefore...I aim to please the people that matter most!!! Besides, I mean WHYYYY NOT find things EVERY WEEK to be thankful for???
Someone gave my sis the sign above and I thought, its SOOOO TRUE!!! There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for!!! Earlier in this week, I was just kinda feeling down, and I just started singing, "He's done SO MUCH FOR me, I can NOT tell it all, I can Not tell it all! He filled me with the Holy Ghost, I can NOT tell it all, I can NOT tell it all, I can NOT tell it all, HE HAS Taken my sins away!!!!" And just singing that song lifted my spirits as I began to think about what all my God has done for me!!! Truly there always, always, ALWAYS is something to be thankful for!!!
First of all, I want to thank God that he has helped this last week or so to get back on track with healthy eating and since last Friday I have lost 8 pounds!!! YAAAAAAY!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

Pastor Abbott decided that THIS year or church would be joining in for all the Jubilee Sundays with the Glendale church! I'm just like YESSSSS...because I've practically waited MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS!!!
Okaaaaaaaaaay super funny story about Jubilee Sunday! Last week before prayer, a group of us, that had gone on outreach were sitting around in the foyer of our church before prayer started. My pastor walks in and is telling us where Jubilee Sunday is. I'm like, Oh okaaaaay...soooooo do you know who is going to be preaching it?!
He is just kinda quiet...I'm like, WEEEEEEELLLL the ONLY REASON I am asking is BECAUSE...I'm just WONDERING if whoever it is preaching is going to be MY FUTURE HUSBAND???!?! Pastor is like, OH TRUST ME, its NOT GOING TO BE YOUR FUTURE HUSBAND!!! I was like, WEEEEEEELLLL...you NEVERRRR KNOW!!! He's like, BELIEVE ME, I KNOW!!! I was just thinking like...Okaaaaaay...turn's out PASTOR WAS RIGHT...bahahahahahaha...cuz...
LOOK WHO'S PREACHING!!!
After we all found out who was preaching, Pastor was like, NOW DO YOU KNOW WHY I SAID ITS NOT YOUR FUTURE HUSBAND??? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! We were all laughing soooooooooooooo hard about that!!! I'm yup, YOU WERE RIGHT...Its most definitely NOT my future husband!!! Buuuuuuuuuuut you NEVERRRR NO...ONE DAY...it JUST MIGHT BE!!! ;)))
Last of all...My purse either got LOST OR STOLEN yesterday!!!!
Soooooooo NO i'm NOT actually thanking God that it got stolen, buuuuuuuuuuuut....In EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS!!! And there is something to be thankful for in this!!! First of all, I had NO MONEY IN IT! I had checked my bank account to see if I had gotten paid earlier in the day, and when I did, I thought should I take some money out...cuz I usually like to take out my tithes and gas money for the next two weeks...and I was like naw...I'll jus get it later!!! GOOD THING I DIDN'T GET ANY OUT BECAUSE...that money would have been GONE!!!
Anywayz, when I was actually realizing that my purse WAS INDEED GONE, I was starting to feel really down and BUMMMMMED about it!!! you know, the whole, O WOE IS ME syndrome!!! LOL And I felt like God just prompted me that I needed to give thanks and to praise and worship him! I was like okaaaaaaaaaaay.... Thank you God...your soooo Gooood... Buuuuuut ya know...it was all like half-hearted...THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I REMEMBERED SOMETHING!!!
On Monday, the big sis had given me the money to pay MJ's last school payment for the year..a lil over $300 dollars...I had FORGOTTEN every day that week to actually walk into the office and pay it...buuuuuuuuuuuuut... Randomly, Friday morning hours I REMEMBERED and paid it!!! Just a few hours later my purse was STOLEN OR LOST...its ME soooooo ONLY GOD KNOWS what REALLY HAPPENED...buuuuuuuut YES...that money WOULD HAVE BEEN IN MY PURSE!!! As the realization hit me I was like...Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus!!! Yes, its a hassle canceling banking cards, getting a new liscense, I lost my adorabley, sparkly, Coach watermelon slice key chain, buuuuuut at least there was no money, no phone and no keys in it annnnnnnnnnd I PAID MJ'S SCHOOL BILL!!!
THANK YOU JESUS!!!
