My heart is full tonight. I'm sitting here on the floor, typing with one hand and petting the sweet, snuggly dog with the other. I really don't know what to say. Where to begin.

I have been richly blessed. I look at this life I am living, and I am truly awed by how God has worked and what He has given.

You know the poem I linked to yesterday? Four of the lines capture my gratefulness: "Yet far beyond full knowing / There's a strong unsleeping Light / That reaches round to hold me / Through the watches of the night." It's that Light - that Presence - that fills my heart to bursting and opens my eyes to the beauty surrounding my life - the beauty that comes from seeing imperfect things illuminated by His light.

I am grateful. For Light. For unseen arms holding me. And, for the growth of being guided through scary night watches.

    and for *knowing* how much I can trust God because of how much He's kept me safe through. pretty empowering. Happy thanksgiving.
