Thanksgiving–Off of the Top

Off the top of my head/heart, what I am thankful for:

  1. a wife to share life and ministry with
  2. a son who is emerging into a young man
  3. a God who is actively involved in my life
  4. a church that is a joy to pastor
  5. a staff that gives me opportunity to use my strengths and delegate my weaknesses
  6. investment of my parents, teachers, and pastors in my character formation
  7. a past that is forgiven, a present that is full, a future that is promising
  8. cholesterol and glucose levels that are now at safe levels
  9. 20 pounds that are no longer on my body
  10. financial health and security
  11. two cars that run and are paid for
