THANKFUL

On my way home from a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with my extended family & in-laws I spent a few minutes reflecting on the things I’m so thankful for.   There are just too many to list, but here’s a brief list of things that came to mind:

T he grace of God that I’ve experienced in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

H appy marriage – wonderful wife for 34 years and things just keep getting better.

A church family where we’re learning  together to BE THE CHURCH not just GO TO CHURCH.

N ew opporutnities for adventure, purpose & significance regularly as I follow God’s design for my life.

K ids who love and follow Christ and serve Him faithfully – so proud of our kids

F amily heritage – wonderful parents that instilled great values in Janet and me and our extendede family heritage!

U nited States of America – for the freedoms we enjoy and for those who provided & those who protect those freedoms

L ife that can be lived to the max in an intimate & dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ
