God applause

applauseIn an effort to help us give God some applause & to get in the thankful mode, let me give you a few things for which I’m thankful & then give you the opportunity to leave a comment with some things you’re thankful for.  I’m thankful for:

  • God’s love for me – this year has been thoroughly mind blowing in experiencing His love
  • getting to go to Ethiopia – a long-time dream come true;  this was a real honor for me
  • family – always keeping you on your toes or knees depending on what’s happening
  • encouragement & support – lots of folk saying & doing cool things
  • friends – this year has been somewhat of a long-needed breakthrough for me in this area
  • greek – how cool that I’ve had the opportunity to grow & learn in studying the Bible!
  • health – can I just tell you that I have biceps?  I couldn’t tell I had these until this year!  Health is also useful for:  snowboarding, travelling, keeping up w the kids, thinking & much more
