I love making up words. I can’t help myself sometimes….
Anyway. I’ve read some posts that have been encouraging people to daily write about what they’re thankful for. I like this idea. I was impressed to even read that my older daughter is participating in this.
Realizing that I am already a day behind, I will consider two things for which I am thankful.
First, I am thankful for my dogs. We inherited our two from our youth pastor at our former church. At the time he thought he was going to be moving and starting work on his PhD. He felt it would be difficult enough to find a house for his growning famil to rent and suspected that he wouldn’t be able to take the dogs. His desire was that someone would adopt both dogs since they had been together since they were pups.
I’m thankful that I found the split leash so that I can walk them together. I’m abundantly thankful that I found the no-pull harnesses. Before I had these two items, walking the dogs was next to impossible. Each time we walked I’m sure my arms grew a couple inches. They still pull me along, but that’s more because I’d rather stroll and they’re looking for an aerobic workout. I really love taking walks with them now–it’s good for both of us.
My second thankful thought belongs to my church.
Nelson and I have been attending here since July 2011. I am a member. It is such a blessing to me to see my husband involved again and digging deeper spiritually. We also take our grandson and he has been getting so much from his time there as well. Just the other night, he and I had a pretty lengthy conversation (keep in mind, he’s only 6) about baptism. Tonight and tomorrow Nelson and I will be attending a marriage seminar, too.
This is our senior pastor, Pastor Tom.
Our congregation would appreciate your prayers for our pastor. On Wednesday evening he was admitted to an area hospital with Dengue Fever and pneumonia. Thanks!
