I am thankful.

It's hard for me to believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I keep having to remind myself. So here is a non-exhaustive list of what I am thankful for this year.

I am thankful for...

  • A merciful and gracious God, who has and continues to meet my needs before I even realize that they exist.
  • My family and friends who reflect God's love to me daily, and I cannot imagine living without. I would list every one of you by name and tell you why I love you if there were world enough and time. I pray you realize how much I appreciate you and how much you mean to me.
  • Good health, good doctors, and good medicine.
  • The opportunities I have been given to meet new people and experience new things.
  • My incredible job, my co-workers, and students.
  • Technology like blogging, email, long distance phone lines and air mail.
  • Heat, which comes in the forms of kerosene heaters, thermal underwear, and microfleece.
  • Good books and good music.
  • Chocolate, grilled cheese sandwiches, Mexican food and Dr. Pepper.

I pray that you will have a wonderful holiday full of family, friends, and good food, and that you too will find many things to be thankful for. I love you all.

Give thanks to the LORD , call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. --I Chronicles 16:8

That sounds like my kind of meal: chocolate, grilled cheese, Mexican food and Dr. Pepper. MMMMM.
