in a year where i felt like i couldn't learn enough,
and some days i felt like i couldn't quite catch my breath...
in a year where some days felt the longest they've ever been,
and some days were the best they've ever been...
in a year where i laid my head on my husband's shoulder and cried big, exhausted tears,
or where i laughed so hard that i couldn't stop & joy seeped out from every corner...

in a year where i woke up on january first feeling the weight of the world on me,
to waking up on november 28 feeling like a very different person...
there is one thing that remains.

his gospel is peace.

every year, i come to this post and i think, 
how did i get here?
how did i get to be this person?
this girl with this phenomenal husband that i don't deserve...
and this son who captured my heart from day one...
and this daughter who beautifully completed this family...

and this God who grants me new mercies and peace every single day.

there is only one way i ended up here.
by the Gospel.
his Gospel is love, it is truth, and it is peace.

and for that reason alone, there is not one ounce of me that could be more thankful.

happy thanksgiving.
