20 Things I’m Grateful for in 2020


Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on those things.

-Philippians 4:8

We had so many great hopes and plans in 2019 as we planned to enter the new year and new decade of 2020. Obviously 2020 didn’t get the memo. Despite the uncertain times we are currently experiencing I still remain hopeful.  I believe that God is in control and the best is yet to come.
