Yesterday, I had several hours in the car to think and pray while my wife slept (her way of helping get us to the destination, I think). I thought of all kinds of things I’m really thankful for, and wanted to spill out my list on my blog, in no particular order…
I’m thankful for…
God’s Son, Jesus and His death on the cross.
The Holy Spirit.
My wife – she’s awesome.
My daughter – she’s awesome too.
My son – he’s gonna be awesome.
Food. Especially my daily bread.
My dog – he’s cool.
My church – they’re sweet.
My staff at church.
The Deacons and leaders at Bethel.
Friends. I’ve got some great ones.
My Bible – preserved by the blood of many martyrs.
Money, especially for the daily bread.
Clothes, shoes, and even shoestrings.
Toys. They’re extra.
Air. It’s vital.
Phones… especially iphones.
Doctors, nurses, firefighters, teachers, police officers, social workers, and soldiers.
Computers. They’re also extra.
Coffee… and lattes.
A recliner and a few other little things.
Boiled custard and those who can make it well.
Hymns like There Is A Fountain.
Poems like The Road Not Taken.
Roads not taken.
Whatever is ahead.
