There is always alot to be thankful for. In spite of a rough start this morning: bad travel weather, the car making funny noises, etc, we have had a great Thanksgiving. For the first time in several years, Sonya and all of her brothers have been together at her parent’s house. We had a great lunch at Sonya’s cousin’s house and saw relatives we haven’t seen in years. What a blessed day!
Some things I am thankful for today:
*Living in freedom
*My wife who loves me for better or for worse:)
*My kids who enrich my life and make sure it is never boring (or quiet)
*My father-in-law who said 4 years ago at Thanksgiving that it would probably be his last. He is still alive four years later.
*Today I have been virtually pain free for the first time in two weeks. Two weeks ago today, I threw out my back.
*My church family whom I love and look forward to many years together. Our future is bright.
I could go on an on with things I am thankful for. God has been so good to us! I am thankful that, as the Apostle Paul said, “He has counted me faithful, putting me in the ministry.” Life is good because God is good!
