I'm thankful...

In the spirit of the week, here are a few things I'm thankful for...
  • For friends who listen, sympathize, encourage and laugh.
  • For a God who is patient with stubborn children like yours truly.
  • For talented Christian musicians who have put God's truth into a form that speaks at a visceral level.
  • For God's Word, which consistently speaks His truth into our lives.
  • For a church family that seeks to be true to God's Word in our study of theology and our practice of community.
  • For a home in a country where I am free in my faith, where I have more than I need materially, and where I can count on basic services.
  • For beauty, which God embedded everywhere in his creation.
  • For a blogosphere where I consistently receive encouragement from people whom I'll probably never meet on this side of heaven.
  • For God's promises of a new heaven and a new earth, free from tears, conflict and pain ... and for the surity of his promises.
  • For time off from work ... and for the opportunity to work where I do, with fantastic colleagues and a job that I feel is making a difference in the Kingdom around the world.

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends -- I'm thankful for all of you!
