Lessons and Blessings

If you know me or my family you have most likely heard the news that I am moving back home. Tomorrow I will be tuning over the keys to my apartment and leaving Kansas. As I look back over the months since I moved here I can see the many lessons I have learned and the blessings I have been given, most of the time the two were intertwined. I have be blessed with finding a wonderful church body that I will miss till we meet again in the sweet by and by. I have been blessed with several new friends, all of whom I will cherish the rest of my life. I have learned family often mean well even when they do not totally understand you. I have learned how to navigate city buses.I have learned how to speak up for my self at home and in the work place (if only a little bit). I have learned the blessing of silence and the blessing of noise. I have learned what a blessing payday can be. I have been blessed by the wonderful birds that visited the pound out my window. Mostly I have learned more about the God I serve. In the last few months I have had to draw closer to Him and my life is so much better because of it. I do not know what the next part of my life will hold, but I know who holds me in His hand and the people who hold me in their prayers and hearts. I am thankful for all of lessons and the blessings I have been given these last months.
