My Grateful Heart for....

The weekend went by all too quickly and Monday has been a little hard, y'all. But ya know what is greater than all? God & His amazing grace. And that's all I need. I want to share a few things that I have been so grateful for lately. Doing this greatly helps my heart & gets me refocused on what's important in my life. And it also gives me so much more love for God & the people around me!
 
+ I'm so grateful for my husband. Yesterday, I was stung twice by a yellow jacket and he instantly knew what to do. He comforted me and was so sweet! I'm so thankful for him!
 
 
 
+ I'm so grateful for marriage. Over the weekend, my husband and I traveled to North Carolina to shoot a wedding. We witnessed my stepbrother & his sweet bride commit their lives to one another under God. It was beautiful. Marriage is such a sweet & serious commitment.
 
 
 
+ I'm so grateful for friends who pray. This morning, I was feeling so much fear for some reason. It was so bad that I couldn't even focus in my quiet time with the Lord. After praying and talking to my husband, I texted my small group ladies and immediately, verses and encouraging texts started flowing in. I could feel God answering their prayers. I'm so thankful for friends, online & in real life, who are willing to carry each other's burdens and rejoice when life is good. God is so good!
 
 
 
What are you grateful for on this lovely fall Monday?
 
I'm linking up with Ember Grey & her weekly Grateful Heart link up!
