Thanksgiving

Thursday, 26 November 2015 | 23:09

Looking back over the past year, I have much to be thankful for. God definitely has a way of giving us far more than we expect. To be truly thankful requires that we actually name that for which we thankful. So, what are some of those things on my list?

  • A job where I feel that I can do good work and where I’m appreciated.
  • A wonderful church family (I’ve said this one several years in a row, and more significantly every time).
  • A warm, comfortable home.
  • The liberties we enjoy, particularly that we can freely and rightly worship God without fearing for our lives.
  • A better concept of my potential role as as missionary, gained after the wonderful month in Uganda.
  • Taryn. A year ago, if you asked me if I would be engaged within a year, I would have laughed. But, God does have that way of giving the unexpected, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What does the next year hold? I may have my ideas, but one thing of which I can be confident is that my list next year will have things on it that I couldn’t even dream of now.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
