Currently sitting at the lab to my lonesome with loads of pages yet to be summarized, translated into Korean, and organized into presentation-form. But in light of Thanksgiving (!) and in light of mustering every kind of excuse possible to not work, I decided to take a break. (,:
2011 has been by far the strangest year and in hindsight, I am thankful.
I started adjusting to a wide range of new situations and during that time God made my heart incredibly tender - for that, I am thankful.
With a tender heart and a grace so impervious, I was soaking everything up like a sponge and because of that, I am thankful.
Time and time again my family continues to blow me away and in that I am eternally thankful.
Friendships of the years and friendships made this year account for my daily ”Lord, I am thankful.”
People who pray for me over the phone when I am consciously excluding prayer humbles me and I am thankful.
Sundays I enter a place where I let out a sigh of relief and I feel like I am back home - each week I am more + more thankful.
I miss so many people in the States but to have those to miss dearly, I guess I have to be thankful…
& yes, even studying here and reluctantly translating - I get to learn and do what I want to learn and do on a daily basis and in that, I will return to it with being thankful. (;
