Another Year

Quarter of a century...Half way to 50...However you want to put it, I turned 25 on Thursday! I had such a wonderful day much thanks to my family and friends who showered me with love and birthday wishes!

For my 23rd birthday I gave you 23 random facts about me, and this year I thought I'd give 25 things I'm thankful for. Here we go...

1. Salvation by grace and the absolute assurance that comes with it!
2. God's Word that brings conviction, comfort, direction, and so much more!
3. Family - both immediate and the many, MANY extended family members =)
4. Church family - they are such a blessing to me
5. Friends - both old and new!
6. Health
7. My job - adorable kids and great parents
8. Musical abilities - piano, flute - it's only because of the Lord that I'm able to play these!
9. Spring is on it's way!
10. A Christian home
11. Being single - don't get me wrong, I would love to get married and pray that one day I will, but at the same time...there are so many opportunities I would have missed out on if I was married.
12. Heartbreak - "A heartbreak is a blessing from God. It's just His way of letting you realize He saved you from the wrong one." ~ Via Mariz
13. Far Above Rubies is now selling hats at a local consignment shop!
14. The 5 senses
15. My Sunday School class
16. Heat in the winter & air conditioning in the summer
17. Color - how boring would things be if everything was black and white
18. Food and the fact that I know how to cook/bake
19. Nature - I can't wait to spend some time outside when the weather warms up, especially my favorite spot!
20. Modern conveniences - dishwasher, washer and dryer, plumbing, etc
21. A yard big enough to garden...can't wait to get started this year!
22. Kindred spirits - meeting someone for the first time and feeling like you've known them for years
23. Being able to attend and serve in a church without fear of persecution
24. Men and women who put their life on the line to protect our lives and the freedoms we enjoy
25. You! It's fun to see all of the visitors that come to read my little blog. Please, don't be shy...leave a comment sometime. I'd love to hear from you and how you found my blog!


  1. Happy (belated) birthday! Great things to be thankful for!

    1. Thanks! I really enjoyed your 'thankfulness month' too!

  2. Kali,
    Happy Birthday!!
    I go to Fairhaven Baptist College, and saw you when you came to visit Becca Gaus. I remember thinking that you and Maggie looked familiar, but I couldn't place where I knew you from. Then when Becca saw my blog, and that I followed your blog, she told me that you had come to visit her. :)
