Turkey Day

It's about 3:30 in the morning as I'm typing this. I have the in laws in my room, Faith is at her daddy's and Letty and I were sleeping in Faith's room. Looking forward to having Letty's family over for the holiday. They are really great people who are fun to be around even if I don't understand half of what is said when everyone starts speaking Spanish.

I've been crazy busy with work the last couple of weeks, I really needed a twenty four break. I was so tired yesterday afternoon I could barely move. It's been nice for us to have the extra money, we could use it. I'm grateful to not be sweating the bills, especially around this time of the year.

I haven't had much time for poker at all. A sit n go here and there and that's been about it. I'm getting ready to play an MTT in about 10 minutes. The bankroll on pokerstars has been hanging around the mid $30's. I'd love to final table a larger tournament and build it up a little further so I can move up in stakes. It's been hard to stay disciplined and play within my bankroll. I've been doing it though.

Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving. I'm grateful for all the wonderful friends that I have made this year. I'm grateful that my walk with God has gotten stronger and more defined. I'm grateful that God has shown me how He takes care of me, even when I feel I am at my most helpless and vulnerable. I'm grateful that all of my relationships have become stronger because I have the confidence that Someone has got my back. I'm grateful that I can just do what's in front of me and leave the results up to Him. I'm grateful to not have to be in control anymore, that I surrender everything to Him.

Thank You Jesus for making Your presence felt stronger in my life than ever before. Thank You for delivering me from my brokenness by Your grace. Thank You for seeing through all of my flaws and loving me in spite of them. Let me remain awed by Your presence so that I remain grateful for all of the beautiful things that You have given and are giving me. Through You my Lord, who all great things are given. Amen.
