I write this from Gainesville, GA – – – home of my wife’s parents. It’s not Saint Simons Island weather here, today – I think the temperature is just about 32 (freezing). I didn’t even bring a jacket, but the boys are determined to stay outside on the trampoline all day long.
Thanksgiving Holiday was yesterday. I’ve taken the time to reflect on all the many things that I should be thankful for. The list is endless, that’s for sure.
Just a few things to mention, though:
I’m GRATEFUL to be born again – that the Holy Spirit of God moved upon me to help me see my need for Christ.
I’m GRATEFUL for a Godly wife and beautiful, healthy children.
I’m GRATEFUL for my parents and family as well as my wife’s parents and family – all who love the Lord.
I’m GRATEFUL that I was brought up in a Christian home with both of my parents being there for me when I needed them.
I’m GRATEFUL to have a nice home on a wonderful Island in southern Georgia.
I’m GRATEFUL to be healthy, and that I can hear out of my left ear even though a previous surgery could have taken that away.
I’m GRATEFUL for my church, my Pastor, and leadership who supports my role as a Worship Leader and that of a business owner.
I’m GRATEFUL for the friends and mentors God’s placed in my life to sharpen and encourage me for the Kingdom.
I’m GRATEFUL for our soldiers who are fighting and risking their lives for our security, freedoms, and safety.
I’m GRATEFUL to live in America.
Like I said – I could go on and on. So could you. If you didn’t take time to reflect, I encourage you to do it. God is good – all the time. May He bless you greatly as we move into the end of the year and this holiday season.
For the Kingdom,
