My Thanksgiving Perspective

As I reflect on Thanksgiving I will share with you what makes me grateful:

I am thankful for the errant Lego I stepped on, because it bears witness that I have been blessed with children.

I’m thankful for my laugh lines, it’s proof that God let me find humor in life.

I’m thankful for my girth, for it reminds me I’ve never really gone hungry.

I am grateful for a beautiful wife who makes me pinch myself often wondering if she is really a dream.

I’m thankful for my last deposited $10 bill because it kept me from paying a bounced check fee of $40.

I am thankful for the rain because it’s nice to dance in it sometimes.

I’m thankful my parents helped me with my drug problem. They drug me to church, prayer meeting, and school.

I’m thankful for boring conversations at the feet of my grandparents. What I wouldn’t do to be in their presence one more time.

I am grateful for a small bank account, it keeps me humble.

I’m thankful for my Bible, it teaches me how to refocus my life.

I’m thankful for a full tank of gas, it means I can exercise freedom to go anywhere.

I am most grateful that God has made a home for me. I’m so homesick and I want to move into it.

I’m thankful for good friends who make life’s journey a little more enjoyable.

What are you thankful for this year?
