Emilie Casseday Photorgraphy, Faith and Hope



comethoufountLast year, at this time of year, I focused on what I was thankful for each day of November. It was amazing, impactful and so fun to think of a new one each day.

I’m so thankful, but this time of year another word comes to mind. Blessed. Beyond measure. Sometimes I just want to sit back in relive the past couple of weeks just to let the impact sink in a little bit more. This year has been hard. I’m not going to lie when I say I can’t wait for 2013 to be over. But out of the ashes comes life. Beauty and blessings that I thought were hidden come growing out of the embers. Ah God you are so good. So good to me. How can I ever be thankful enough?

One of my all time favorite hymns is Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. Teach me some melodious sonnet sung by flaming tongues above. God has taught me to live, breath, be thankful and rest assured He has it all taken care of.

What is sharing God’s work if we do not share what He has done for us? Here are some of the blessings that have been showered upon us after a year of flames. I pray for blessings for you. Especially if your world is on fire right now. Don’t worry. The rain will come.

    Em, you have no idea how much I connected with this post. This year has been a rough one for me, too. I am looking forward to a fresh new year although there are many great things that happened in 2013 that I need to remember to be thankful for. Thanks for the reminder.

    Also, that hymn is one of my absolute FAVORITES! Especially Sufjan’s version. Oh, man. Tears. Pretty much always tears.
