Thankful Thursdays (Link up!)...

Time to count our blessings again, y'all!  I'm beginning to really like Thursdays... :)

{I'm thankful} that my haircut seems to be finally growing into something I sort of like.  The girl who cut it (understandably) took my "give me Jennifer Aniston hair" comment to mean that I wanted really thick, straight ends.  I think I'll still ask her to cut into the ends a little bit next time, but this look isn't horrible, I suppose.

{I'm thankful} that I didn't have a heart attack the other night when I sat up in the bathtub after rinsing out the conditioner in my hair and opened my eyes to see this:

(please pardon my messy bathroom.)

Creeper had just appeared out of nowhere like a ninja, and he scared the living daylights out of me.  I may or may not have uttered screamed a profanity or two in his general direction.  (It was involuntary, y'all. I try so hard to keep my exclamations cute and clean and can sometimes manage a "mother FLIP!" when my brain can make the substitution in time.  But when I'm taken by surprise, I find it almost impossible to stop myself.  Oopsie doodle.  Let's all pray that the pastor doesn't sneak up on me at church sometime...)


{I'm thankful} that God has been quietly reminding me that this eating right/exercising thing could be something so much bigger if I'd keep Him in the center of it.  Before my run on Tuesday, I wondered what my run would be like if let Him be my strength - if I could think of Him when I felt like I couldn't keep going.  And so I did.  Every time I wanted to quit, I whispered a quiet "in You, Christ" to myself.  And, surprise, surprise... it ended up being one of my best runs yet.  He is so, so good.

And last but not least, {I'm thankful} for my ninja creeper who sends me weird texts like this:


Hope you all have a lovely Thursday!

When I first started running a couple of years ago, and I got to a tough part of the run, I remember saying/praying every time "Lord- I know I can't go any further. Please take me the rest of the way". It makes it so special to finish up that run knowing that you didn't even do the hard part:)

I catch myself still doing this... It reminds me of where my strength truly comes from!!
