My absolute favorite verse:

You know what I’m really thankful for? Understanding the verse above (Proverbs 31:25) “She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs with no fear of the future.” I’ll explain why I’m drawn to the beginning of the verse in a later blog post, but the end is what’s key now. “She laughs without fear of the future.” Sometimes (if you are like me in any way) we get caught up in what’s happening next. Our next job, next apartment, next relationship, next big change, next big exciting happening. We get so caught up thinking about the future – and it’s easy to question what’s going to come next. What if we just laughed at the future? Laugh without fear. I genuinely do not know where I’ll be or what will happen next year or month or week or even tomorrow. Rather than freak out about it or overanalyze it or try to micromanage it, why not just accept the future for what it’s worth? Laugh worthy. Love worthy. Live worthy. I’m excited about the future – and I’m not scared of it at all. And THAT, is something to be very thankful for.
