Tis the week of Thanksgiving
And all 'cross the nation,
Families are gath'ring
In glad celebration!

Now that I've gotten the rhyming bug out of my system... Happy Thanksgiving!!! I saw an interesting phenomenon on Facebook this November: People listing the things they are thankful for in a status update each day. I didn't do that, so I've decided to ponder the things that I am thankful for and list them here. I also would like to know what YOU are most thankful for this holiday season. It's cool to see things from other's perspectives.

Here we go! I am thankful for...
  1. My fiance
  2. My family
  3. A good job
  4. The kids I work with
  5. My paychecks
  6. A warm place to live
  7. A lovely place to sleep
  8. Good food to eat
  9. Fusion (Bible Study)
  10. My church
  11. Godly coworkers
  12. Sweet friends
  13. A new apartment
  14. My guitar
  15. Music
  16. Smiling faces
  17. Giggles
  18. Books (and the fact that I can read)
  19. Funny movies
  20. Calculators
  21. Computers
  22. Bottled water
  23. Kleenex
  24. Modern medicine
  25. My pillow

I saved the most important thing for last. I am thankful for the sacrifice that Jesus made for me, how He shed His own innocent blood to pay for my sins. I am thankful that God has chosen me to be the recipient of such marvelous grace.

May God bless you richly this Thanksgiving.
