Thanksgiving Thanks

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!
