Here we go with Thankful Thursday again. I hope you have some things that you can be thankful for this week. Here are some of the things I’m thankful for this week.
Books on my phone
I spent several hours at the airport and in a plane last weekend and I’m thankful for technology that fits into my pocket that provides entertainment anywhere. Sometimes I still marvel at how much phones can do. I’m particularly thankful for being able to read books on my phone. This weekend I read through Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. I have recently seen the movie and I often find Austen novels easier to read after I’ve seen the movie. I enjoyed reading it already knowing what was going on.
Friends who feed me
I had dinner at our friends’ house Wednesday night because J was out at Bible study (which includes dinner). My friends didn’t want me to have to eat alone. Then after dinner we sat together in their house and studied (they are both students at college as well). Being an introvert, I don’t often mind being alone but it was nice to have company that night, to chat about our day and companionably read together. Thanks friends!
The relevance of the Bible
Today a dear friend preached in women’s chapel on Exodus 3:16-4:17. We have college mission coming up in a couple of weeks and she used this passage to help us think about mission and encourage us to rely on God who uses even our fumbling words and who helps us to speak. I’ve been feeling nervous about mission and if I’ll say and do the right things so this was a great comfort and encouragement to me.
