Happy Thanksgiving!

This season of Thanksgiving compels us to examine ourselves and list what we are thankful for.  The exercise itself can be almost daunting; we found that in many ways we have become almost thank-“less” for the many blessings we have in our lives. We repent. Ephesians 5:20 – “Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ...”
 
We are thankful for:  (the list is long and mostly Terry’s, but here are a few, we’ll stop at 25:)
 
1.      God – His mercies, grace, love, friendship
2.      Wife – my best friend, companion, partner in ministry, mother of my children
3.      Children and grandchildren – the very riches of life
4.      The Bible – the never-changing, unfailing truth
5.      Job
6.      Shelter and provisions, food, clothing, transportation
7.      America
8.      Friends
9.      Church – a strong home Church with a vision and burden for the community and missions
10.   Heritage – our backgrounds and experiences have made us what we are
11.   Soldiers, past and present, who protect our freedom
12.   Christian music
13.   Laughter
14.   Mexican Food
15.   The ocean
16.   Jeans and t-shirts
17.   Sunny Days
18.   Technology – the ability to stay in contact with family and friends so easily
19.   Guitars
20.   Hymns of the church
21.   Sunday Night Church services
22.   Coffee
23.   The Rain
24.   Ice cold Coke Zero
25.   Christian mentors and role-models
 
In summary, collectively as a couple, we agree that the one thing we are thankful for is God’s faithfulness. ‘He is faithful, His love never ceases, His mercies are new every morning…’ Lamentations 3:22-23

We would like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.
