I saw this on The Today Show this week, and I couldn’t resist since S.P.C. is my fav Thanksgiving dish!
This year I feel that I have so much to be thankful for, and I thought I would share some of it with you! Even though being thankful and verbally saying it is something I think we should do all year long, I hope that you have taken some time to truly verbalize it if you don’t do that on a normal basis!
1- I am so thankful for a Redeemer and Friend in Jesus. He is the reason I can joyfully sing Joy to the World at Christmas. With out Him, I would have no reason to list anything else I am thankful for because everything is made by Him and redeemed by Him!
2- I am so thankful for the people in my life who have encouraged me in my faith in the past and present. With out that cloud of witnesses I don’t know where I would be or what I would be doing!
3- I am thankful that I do work that matters…ministry is something that is completely unique, and if you see it as something just as a job or paycheck then you miss the whole point. Oftentimes, I am told that I am changing peoples lives, but the truth is the volunteers, parents and students I work with change mine!
4- I am so thankful for my family. We have been through a lot over the years, but we are still close. I never have to wonder if they have my back,…and I hope they don’t have to wonder if I have theirs.
5- I am so thankful for my friends. I went through a good portion of high school feeling like I had plastic friends, and it is so good to have real friends. Friends I can laugh with, cry with, wear a t-shirt with (Sam), celebrate with, and pray with…they are such a blessing.
6- I am so thankful for Dave Ramsey. I went through his 13 week class this year, and he truly has revolutionized the way I look at finances.
7-I am so thankful for education. Of course, I am thankful for my education. What I really mean is I am thankful that I am forever learning. I can always continue my education through reading, observing, and learning from mistakes and wins!
