there is always something to be thankful for ya'll!

Good morning!
I am so excited today because late last night I found out that my paper was chosen to be presented at an upcoming conference at my University.
I have up to 12 minutes to talk about my paper and present it to the school faculty/conference participants.
I'll be doing a lot of praying the next few days about this. I'm ecstatic but also nervous when thinking about going up there and presenting my paper. 

It makes me feel better knowing that God is the source of all of my strength and joy, so that I can be more confident in doing this.

 Exodus 15:2 "The LORD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him."
Psalm 40: 4 "Blessed is the person who places his confidence in the LORD."

What has the Lord blessed you guys with lately? Thankfulness is an act of worship ya know, God loves it when we simply praise Him :)
