thankful on mondays: april 18

this monday, i'm thankful for...

1.  coffee
2.  a friend who keeps finding hope where there wasn't any before
3.  chocolate cheerios (yes, i actually bought them and they are delicious!)
4.  good small group discussion
5.  and finally, that,
            "the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
     his mercies never come to an end;
     they are new every morning;
     great is your faithfulness.
     'the Lord is my portion,' says my soul,
     therefore i will hope in him.
     it is good that one should wait
     quietly for the salvation of the Lord." 
                                    -lamentations 3:22-26
