I think Thanksgiving is the coolest Holiday America does. We all stop to actual be thankful for all the wonderful stuff in our life. It could help us to be a more grateful people, which leads to deeper joy, peace and generosity. It can even lead people to worship God who is the giver of all good things!
So what am I thankful for? There is a lot! I’m thankful for Gwen my wife who has been my friend for 30 years and still loves me. I am thankful for all three of my kids. Each has brought great joy to my life and taught me much. I’m proud of them. For my parents and family of origin who showered me with love and wrapped me in community. I am thankful for my tripod who have encouraged me over the last seven years. I’m thankful for my staff. They have enriched my life and make going to “work” enjoyable.
I want to especially thank God for this church. I am amazed what a special group of people you are. You have been willing over the years to allow me to learn on the job, take risks and have been willing to leap in faith together. You have truly been a “Come as you are… and be loved” group. You are so willing to get your hands dirty to serve others and have honored Jesus. You are also fun!
I could go on and on but I won’t!
Please share a few things you are thankful for.
