Thankful for….

November 25, 2008

The word tells to be thankful. Thankfulness requires more than just saying it. Real thankfulness comes from contemplating God’s faithfulness in your life. 

I’m thankful for….

1. Jesus Christ and the direction he continues to bring to my life EVERY day.

2. My family. We have been blessed with health, resources, and success this year.

3. My church because they are the one and only Cornerstone Family. 

4. My mentors. Without them being there at key times, I would not be as confident.

5. My country. I’m free and able to live free.

6. My life. I have opportunities that most of the world will never have.

7. My friends. Most I don’t see often, but when I do we are still close.

1. “It ain’t over until it’s over.”

Sarah Palin has made the race a choice of gender, as well as race. The choice could come down, for some of us, to what’s more important: philosophy, race, gender?

2. In order to get some things done you must have a strategy to do them.

3. Good leaders read books that relate to reaching younger people, not just baby boomers.

4. The hospital is still a tough place to be in.

5. All of life comes down to making disciples. All else is not as important.

6. A good small group or Sunday School class requires more than teaching.

7. The way you coach your kids impacts their identity.
