Thanksgiving Challenge - Day 13

So much to be thankful for today.

- Church. I love my church and am so thankful for those who serve so faithfully there.

- Ministry. We serve in a ministry we love, outside of our church, called Missionary Furlough Homes. The foundation owns 18 townhomes here, and we offer them to missionaries on furlough for a very reasonable rate. We serve as houseparents to one unit--it's a perfect fit for our family and one I'm grateful for.

- Family. Everyone in our family was scattered hither and yon this weekend, but we're all back where we're supposed to be tonight. I'm thankful for journey mercies for all of us over the past few days.

- Friends. We went to dinner tonight with some wonderful friends, two of whom met in my class a loooonnng time ago, and one of whom claims to be my biggest fan. I don't have the heart to tell her that I'm not worth fanning over, but I love that she reads here.

We are blessed beyond belief, and it's been great to count them all this month. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us this week.

So tell me, what blessings are YOU counting this weekend?

  1. You are totally worth "fanning" over...(haven't I told you I have printed out certain posts of yours incase the internet crashes and my girls aren't yet grown?) and "she" doesn't become a fan of just anybody! I'm so thankful to have you as a neighbor, friend, and model to pave the way for raising daughters.
