I am very thankful for my small group, for my church, for my faith, and for my relationship with Jesus. I was especially thankful tonight that Emily came with me. I was afraid that she'd be bored, but she seemed to feel at home. While it's important for everyone to have faith, I think that it's particularly important for my Emily to have faith. And on that note, our aunt sent us the best forward tonight. I will leave you with this. It is very similar to what I try to pray, though I'm not nearly that organized. I'm heading to bed. Good night!

You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
