  1. Yes! So many things to be thankful for!! It is good to recognize things to thank God for, a lot of times, littler things sometimes get taken for granted.
    P.S. that peanut butter bark looks delicious!!!

    1. You are totally right, Brooklyne! The Bible says to given thanks in EVERYTHING -- the little stuff included! :)
      Oh yes, that bark is absolutely amazing! It's made from chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and small Reeses peanut butter cups. Super duper easy! And insanely delicious. :)

  2. I really enjoy reading your thankful posts! That's a lot of music!!! Ha, I have some things that need organizing too... And that peanut butter bark looks delicious! Do you have a recipe for it? Or was it improvisation... ;)
    So happy about spring too!
    Things I'm thankful for...
    God's word
    A personal relationship with God
    My family
    The hard things in life that bring me closer to God

    1. These posts are a lot of fun to put together! I'm glad someone is enjoying them! :) I know, it looks like a lot of music but in reality its not, cause musicians can never have too much music ;)
      Haha yes, it was mostly improvisation ;) I just melted down chocolate chips, spread it out on parchment paper, stuck it in the freezer while I melted down the peanut butter chips, then took the chocolate back out and drizzled the peanut butter on top and broke the Reeses cups to put on top. Then I just kept it in the fridge until it was devoured :) Super easy!
      Those are great things to be thankful for! I love the last one you mentioned, about being thankful for the hard things in life that God uses to draw us to Him. It is so important to realize that those situations are actually blessing us as God is using them in a special way to make us more like His Son. Isn't that incredible?!

    2. Amen sister! No such thing as too much music!!!
      Oh, okay, I need to try that... Sounds so good! Although I'm not crazy about chocolate like most people I know, I do like it, and I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER!!!!
      Yes, it's so incredible! God can use tough circumstances in ways no one else can!
      By the way, forgot to say thanks for linking back to my post. ;)
      And I LOVED your new youtube video!!! One thing I liked about one of your other videos though (the hamster song I think it was called) is I got to watch your face as you played. So fun to watch your expressions as you play that song!!!

    3. Yes, do try it! It's super good!! And I'm the opposite; I love chocolate but I'm eh about peanut-butter. I don't mind Reeses though so I figured I'd probably like this too ;)
      Oh, you're welcome! I hope people take the time to read it!
      Aww, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I'm actually playing that piece tonight for church. That is very good to know about how you like seeing my expressions! I have another video of O Worship the King, taken from that same view (side of keyboard), that I may switch the current video out with. I didn't really like the lighting in the video anyway :/

  3. I always love your thankful posts! Some things I'm thankful for are encouraging blog posts, open windows, new movies, card making, a new pet, and so much more! :D

    1. Love those blessings! Ooh, what new pet did you get? :)

  4. I enjoyed this post! That music organization reminded me of all the music I need to organize right now, haha!

    1. Haha -- I think all musicians have music to organize. ;) I think it's kind of fun though! I come across music I forgot I had :)

  5. And that Nearer Still Nearer is gorgeous!!!
    And awesome job on O Worship the King!

    1. I know, isn't it?? *heart eyes emoji* I think I want it played at my wedding someday xD It's just SO gorgeous!!
      Thanks! It was sort of a last minute offertory piece so I made sure I got a video before I moved on. Last time I had one of those I didn't bother to get a video before I moved on, so now I need to go back and re-learn it to do a video with :/
