I thought I would just start a small list of some of the things that I'm thankful for....
I'm thankful for the Lord, thankful for the Bible, thankful for my family, my wife and children, and I'm thankful for my friends.
My thanksgiving list also includes Shepherd of the Hills Church, my life, my health, my staff and my ministry.
I'm appreciative that the Lord allows me to live in California, thankful for all the Christians who live in our city, thankful for our Christian schools and Christian preschools. I'm thankful for the Christian heritage that my parents gave to me, and I pray that I can pass that on to my children.
I'm thankful for our freedom and for the men and women who defend our nation everyday around the world. I'm also thankful for the veterans and for those who died that we might have the freedoms we now enjoy.
I'm thankful for the missionaries who serve around the world, thankful for all those who volunteer in our Church. I'm thankful for our Elders and thankful for those who work in the Children's department. I'm thankful for those who are here for the long haul... those that are NOT going to give up when times get tough....
I have to say I'm thankful for pumpkin pie with whipped cream... :)
I am THANKFUL FOR EACH OF YOU....
May you take some time this weekend to truly thank the Lord for ALL his KINDNESS and GOODNESS.
