Thanksgiving is today, which seems very fitting for this blog post, in my opinion at least. I know that thanks isn\’t 100% what the sweetness of grace means, but I definitely think it\’s in there somewhere. I think that I like it because it\’s very much how I feel right now, that I\’m a receiver of sweet grace. I\’m home (at my parent\’s house in Houston) for the first time in months. I have no school, no work, no cares that can\’t wait until Monday. I have 1/2 a week to just be with my family and play Beatles Rock Band and eat turkey and St. Hubert\’s gravy and watch the Macy\’s Thanksgiving Parade. That\’s a pretty sweet grace. I\’m also so thankful for my friends and family who have been my shelter and support and continue to be my haven. I\’m thankful I have a shelter and food to eat and my health and people who understand me (or at least make a good faith effort). I\’m thankful of my education and the fact that I even have the opportunity at an education, let alone a graduate-level one. Man, thinking about all these things to be thankful for makes my life seem really great right now. Not that everything is exactly where I had hoped it would be, but I\’m still here, unfolding my journey, trying to grow and I believe that that counts for something. So I guess the purpose of this entry for right now is this: Sweetness of grace for me is the sum of all the blessings God gives us throughout our lives. It\’s absolutely delicious.
