Make a daily habit of thanking God.

Our pastor recently related a story during her children’s sermon about her mother encouraging her to thank God for five things every day. She recalled that as a young child, she thought it was going to be really hard to come up with five things but with a little effort, she found it wasn’t so hard after all. I realize how important it is to thank my Father for all the things He has shown me, in His timing, not mine. I would not have learned what I did had I been in charge of the dots.

I also realize how important it is to make a daily habit of thanking God, not just on a day when our minds naturally turn towards thanks and giving.

I am thankful for meeting the love of my life when I was only in fourth grade and that we celebrated 39 years of marriage this past June.

I am thankful for our two wonderful sons and our incredible daughter-in-law, and a loving extended family.

I am thankful for all the dots along the way and God giving me the ability to connect those dots in service to others.

I am thankful for you following along on this journey and pray blessings for you and your families.

I am thankful.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).
