Thankfulness Abounds in December.

It's already December! Time seems to be flying! Although Thanksgiving was a couple of weeks ago, I decided to create a vlog on some things I'm thankful for. I think this is attempt #4 (I redid it for a few silly reasons). December is always a busy, hectic month, but I hope that in the busyness of decorating your home for Christmas, buying gifts for your loved ones and having festive holiday parties that you take the time to quiet your hearts before God and focus on knowing Him more.

Also, Arielle's post on singleness was such a blessing and encouragement to me today! God has given her a wonderful ministry to young women, both married and unmarried. If you're single I hope you'll take a moment to read what she has to say about using the extra time in your life to be actively pursuing knowing Christ.

My pastor referenced Isaiah 9:6 in his message yesterday and it made me think about all of the names of God. He has so many different titles and each one serves a unique purpose. I'm thankful that He's my Lord and Savior!

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. -Isaiah 9:6

I clicked on the link you gave and read the post on singleness. Thanks for sharing it! I really needed to read that today to remind myself that even though being single can be lonely and a drag sometimes, I must focus on the Lord and use this period of freedom to do His bidding and further His kingdom.

I will be checking out that link as soon as I finish this comment. Time always seems to fly by and before you know it, it will be Christmas day. My Dad has a saying that he always says on July 4: "Well, tomorrow it'll be Christmas." It sure seems like it! :) I love finding all the names of god. In our Bible study a few years ago we had a study on all the names of God. We took a different one each week and find all the references to that name and discuss what it meant and why it was used in that verse, etc. It was enlightening and fun.
