  1. So beautiful. Thanks for writing this. :) On Thanksgiving, I was looking over the last months of lists of things I’m thankful for (my 100 days of gratefulness that I told you about), and I could see in everything the pattern of His mercy, His love, the riches of His grace. The pages may be filled with gratefulness for the “things” and people and all the loveliness He’s given me in the world, but in the end, all my lists are really about Him and what He has done for me. This list of 30 things you composed is just a reminder added on to all that my heart has been feeling. Jesus is Lord and King, and I am His Beloved! I love the first one: “He found me worth dying for”.
    I love you, I miss you, I hope you’ll be at Bible Study this time!
