Fathers Day

It's been a surprisingly good day. Considering my father passed away six months ago I am not feeling any sense of sadness. I am able to think of him and reflect on fact that he is with God. I find myself feeling more peaceful and happy than anything else. Thinking about how he must be overjoyed in God's presence is a source of comfort I can't even explain. 
Yesterday was 2 years since my grandfather passed on and my grandmother bought some flowers to put by his picture. We talked a lot about how he must be enjoying being in heaven. I think that is very comforting to her since she of course still feels his loss the most. 
I can't imagine losing a spouse, but watching my grandmother and mom grieve for their husbands has been such a great example. Seeing how they cling to the Lord and His word is something that I hope to model for my daughters if I were ever to lose my spouse.
I suppose really what I take away from all of this is that I am thankful no matter what the circums…

I love it here.

I really never thought that I would say that love West Virginia. Here I am though, screaming it from the rooftops. I absolutely love this state. It's beautiful! 
The people, our church, the mountain scenery, the lovely mid Ohio Valley we live in, everything about this place has just made me enjoy it so much here. I feel so blessed to live here.
Ironically enough I am posting this while walking my dog. You think such a menial task wouldn't bring me to thinking of something like this, but I'm just so thankful right now. I can't help but think of how OVERJOYED I am. 
God is so good. Life is so good. I just can't seem to say it enough. I'm thankful, so very thankful.
