Advent is a time of year when many people’s minds turn towards STUFF. What am I getting? What am I giving? What do I want? How will I decorate? What do I need? Buy more stuff. Stuff to eat. Stuff to wear. Stuff to decorate with. Stuff to give. Stuff to keep for ourselves.
This Christmas season, I’ve been blessed with plenty of STUFF–but I’ve been mostly blessed by the PEOPLE in my life.
Today I’m thankful…
…that my little sister could come up to Columbus for the day and spend a bit of time with me and Anna
…that I was able to get a hold of my friend from church today–even though I didn’t know her phone number or address, or even the NAME of her business
…that my sister knew the name of Maria’s business so I could drop off my gifts for her
…that all of the kids happened to be there when I dropped by–and that we had some wonderful conversation while I was there
…that I have wonderful coworkers who I truly enjoy working with
…that I was able to catch up with an old classmate-turned-coworker today when she visited our facility
To the God who revealed Himself as a man, incarnate–
For the people He has granted me the privilege of knowing and loving–
I give thanks.
