a praiseworthy spaghetti dinner

In other news....

Philippians 4:8
"if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things"
And so I do...
I think of my cousin in drug rehab, who's finding freedom, hope and new life! He's doing awesome and I'm so blessed to be able to witness yet another miracle in my family, where the power of addiction has lost it's grip.
I think of the relationships in my life that are being built stronger, the people in my life I'm able to build into and encourage. I think of our relationship with my daughters dad and step mom, and all that God continues to do, as He blows us away day after day, with how far reaching His vision is.
I think of a friend that God placed back in my life a couple years ago, who I've been able to watch grow more and more into the woman she's been created to be. I'm blessed to know her and love her.
I think of our life group, and the unity we are finding in being open and honest with one another. I think of my friend who is coming back and finding the peace she has been missing in her life for too long. I praise Him for bringing the prodigals home.
I think of all that God has been doing in me and my sis, and am still overwhelmed at the reality of where we are. I never would've dreamed.
I will continue to think about such things, as He continues to prove my faith genuine.
What excellent and praiseworthy things are you thinking about?
