Thankful & Content…continued

There are so many ways that I am blessed beyond yesterday’s post about being blessed first and foremost by God’s grace and salvation. But here are some other things I am thankful for:

  • The most amazing woman in the world…my wife and best friend, Kim! I don’t think I could live without her.
  • 8 little (and not so little) Whiplets that God has blessed us with! Aly, Aubrey, Aaron, Anna Beth, Abby, Aidan, Aisley, and Andie Marie. Our quiver is full and we are blessed! (Psalm 127)
  • An awesome extended family and a heritage of faith and ministry.
  • The unbelievable blessing of pastoring an amazing church! WOW! I don’t deserve this.
  • Dr. Pepper
  • A house that will accomodate my family!
  • Good friends and partners in God’s Kingdom Work.
  • A great staff at The Ridge. Don’t know where I’d be without Doug & Wendell. (And most recently Rachel)
  • Our great nations forefathers…all the way back to the Pilgrims…and the incredible sacrifices that birthed this great nation.
  • Those who are defending freedom all around the world right now. I salute you!
  • Good health…and healthy children
  • Those cheese biscuits at Jim N Nicks
  • Libronix Bible Study software. Amazing!
  • A new computer this year
  • The Andy Griffith Show
  • The chance to coach my boys in baseball
  • The unbelievable Strategic Service Volunteers at CATR! Amazing job week in and week out!
  • Clothes on my back and shoes on my feet…even if they aren’t the latest fashion.
  • My truck.
  • A van that will hold all the Whiplets!
  • Wrestling with my kids in the living room floor
  • An old riding mower that was given to me earlier this year. Gets the job done!
  • A “kid car” that God blessed our oldest with this year.
  • A third trailer for CATR
  • Rain
  • Freedom
  • Food in the pantry and freezer.
  • The awesome, humbling privilege of being a part of God’s Kingdom work!
