This week’s thankfulness report. I admit that sometimes it’s hard for me to remember what happened; the days fly by in a blur, and I don’t keep a gratitude journal. However, here we go:
+Godly teaching at my church. No tickling of the ears, saying what is politically correct or inoffensive. Loving in tone, which it ought to be (see 2 Timothy 4:3, 1 Corinthians 1:18, Colossians 4:6).
+Thoughtful worship put together by our worship leader and presented with excellence.
+Family Day, celebrated the third Monday of February in Ontario. A chance to get together with family, have a day off from work/school and relax.
+Not having to cook dinner on Saturday or Monday. D and I went to a dinner theatre Saturday night for a combo birthday/Valentine’s celebration; Monday we had Swiss Chalet.
+Opportunities to be silly, including watching hokey old television series like The Love Boat. (I know you’ll cut me some slack – it was Valentine’s weekend, after all).
+Social times with our life group and getting to know the members better through an icebreaker and the Who Said That? board game.
+The basics that we often take for granted: shelter, food, clothing, employment, health, a beautiful family, the ability to cast my cares on God…
What are you thankful for today?
