- I met a darling little two and a half year old adopted Chinese girl who at the age of three months was abandoned in a cardboard box on the street. I am thankful for the loving parents I had.
- I have heard the saying ‘cryin’ friends’. There are a lot of people that we meet day to day with whom we can share our joy, but ‘cryin’ friends’ are the ones who share our deepest sorrows. I am blessed to have ‘cryin’ friends’.
- I am a Christian. I went to church this morning and laughed with my friends, worshipped, sang hymns, stood outside the church and visited, and then drove home to enjoy the rest of my day. I live in a nation where I have the freedom to worship as I please. Not everyone does. http://www.persecution.net/

Caught between the turkeys and the trees…
Do you feel like the Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings and the Christmas tree and, um…, all the trimmings crashed into each other?
I mean, here we are between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, all ready to zoom into Christmas and leave Thanksgiving as a blur behind us. Wouldn’t it be nice to carry the spirit of thankfulness into the Christmas season?
This week I was reminded of some very basic things that I should be thankful for – basic and yet profound.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end;
They are new every morning;
Great is Thy faithfulness.
