Give Thanks

It's fast coming up on the time of the year to give thanks to God for what he has done for us. It's been getting a lot easier lately to see all those great things. I'm beginning to feel that my girlfriend and I are getting closer with each moment we spend together. Those moments, however have been few and far between.

See, the distance thing has always been there. We knew the difficulties going in. A lot of people in my life have told me that long distance relationships have absolutely no chance. Yet, soon we'll be coming up on six months. I'm really beginning to think that this might be it. She's agreed to come home with me for Christmas vacation this year. It's the first time I've been back in a year, and I'm bringing someone along.

The student ministry is coming along each and every week we meet. After having some time to sit back and look at what God has given me, I've realized that I've got the most wonderful problem to deal with. The growth in numbers and spirituality of these kids has been overwhelming me. But just today, I looked and realized that this is a great thing! It's so much better to deal with a problem of too many than not enough, right?

It's kind of like in Taekwondo. I've been taking it for a few months now. I was so upset that I lost in the first round 5-3. But as I had a chance to look back and think on it, I realized that I, with no athletic talent, got 3 shots in. How much have I improved since starting? I can't wait to test for Green on Monday.

That's about it for now.
