There are people who think thanksgiving is a day for great holiday sales and a day off.
But really it is a day to GIVE THANKS for all of your blessings. So here are a few of the blessings that God richly blessed my life with …
My Saviour Jesus Christ: With love, grace, forgiveness and eternal life
My Wife: My high school sweetheart, love of my life and best friend
My Son: He has brought me more joy and happiness than he could ever know, and serving God is one of the greatest ways he blesses his mom and dad
My Mom, Dad: Thanks for the love and the Godly foundation that started my path in life so well
My Step Parents: Thanks for your love and acceptance
My in-laws: Talk about being accepted, my wife says they love me more than her! Wonderful people who teach forgiveness, grace, acceptance and awesome hospitality
Mikes Gang: Love, fun, sharing, caring, laughter and great prank gifts!
My Sister and her husband: The darling baby of the family and part-time/full-time caretaker of us all and her husband who is funny, generous and the caretaker of our caretaker – thank you sir
My Sister from another mother: Watching you grow up has been a delight. Glad we are family and that your husband and children make you so happy
My Brother: A great younger brother who had always encouraged me to walk closer to God. My encourager in childhood and now partner in ministry in adulthood. Loving wife who sings like an angel and children that would make any parents proud!
