Here are a few things I thanked God for during my quiet time this morning …

  • Today and everyday, I have a God that loves me and forgives me, despite my faults and screw ups. Psalm 103:11-13

  • I’m thankful that I am rich in marriage. Money can’t buy what I have. Lea is my soul mate and someone I can trust. I am minutes away from open arms at anytime during my day. She is my confidant, friend and lover. I have what all the Country & Western singers croon about. (And just think of it, my sweet wife only has … me! Pray for her.) Proverbs 18:22

  • I’m thankful that God has blessed me with four boys to raise. I look at them and swell with pride. God has given me the huge responsibility of raising them to be Christian men, husbands and fathers. It’s a tall task, but one I’m honored to have. Psalm 127:3-5

  • I’m thankful for a church that’s not content to sit on their hands (or backside), but wants to reach out and serve a community and the lost. My church family has been such a blessing to me in so many ways. I love doing ministry with them. Acts 2:42-47

  • I’m thankful today for God’s word that blesses my life. It encourages me, rebukes me, disciplines me and gives me hope. It tells me about an amazing plan that God schemed in order to save His children. That plan included the unbelievable sacrifice of God’s own son. Psalm 119:105

What’s something you’re thankful for today?

    I’m thankful for my son and my husband. Five years ago, neither of them were anywhere in any of my plans. I was going to be a perpetually single archaeologist digging in foreign dirt forever. This is so much better. Funny how things work out sometimes.

    I’m thankful that I have a job to go to, that I work for a Christian lady, and that my job has health insurance. It’s not a perfect job, but it IS a job, and working for someone who’s constantly asking “Don’t you need time off for that youth thing this weekend?” is AWESOME.

    I’m thankful that I get the chance to go to grad school. It’s a luxury and a blessing, and I’m really excited about it. If I stay on schedule, I’ll get my P.h.D at the same time Noah graduates from Kindergarten. Can you say polyester muumuu photo op? I knew you could.

    I’m thankful for a man like you who
    is dedicated to his family and congregation, and community who is outgoing and seems to say what needs to be said in all circumstances. gmj

    I am thankful that difficult days only last for so long. I am thankful that when I am having one, God’s providence is at work. Maybe God’ providence was at work to bring me to your page today, to remind me to be thankful.

    I’m thankful for so many things, I lost count! But for today, I’m really thankful for a friend who’s like a grandmother to my children, who will stop by my house even when it’s a mess and play with my kids while I make dinner for our church family. If only she read your blog so she could read this — guess I’ll have to write her a note to let her know how much I appreciate her! :o)

    today, while watching “finding nemo” with my barfy baby, i thought of you and one of your “tall task” boys. . . nemo, do you want this anemone to sting you? YES!!! remind you of anyone you know? one of your “little guys” perhaps? Always enjoy your blog!

    Along with what you’ve mentioned (that is also true in my life, except we raised one boy and one girl), I’m thankful for friends who remind me to be thankful! It’s been a very, very stressful and frustrating couple of weeks (which is why my blog is temporarily closed) and your thoughts today were good for me.

  11. Margaret Cross says:

    I’m thankful for an awesome God that loves me despite my humanity.

    And I’m thankful for a country to live in that allows me to not only praise and worship God openly but to raise our families to not only obey the laws of the land but to obey God’s laws as well.

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
