Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that today you and your family have a special and happy day together as you take time to SLOW DOWN and appreciate all the many blessings that God has given. Since we don’t get to sit at the table together and go around during the meal sharing what we are thankful for I wanted to share a few items off my list:

My Savior who loved Me and gave Himself for Me. His love takes my breath away and I can’t wait to see Him face to face.

My Bride who is my love, partner in crime and my best friend. She is such a wonderful mother and encourager.

My two beautiful girls who make me smile & laugh and make me want to love Jesus more.

The amazing people at fresh life. It is a thrill to teach the Bible to hearts that are hungry for God’s Word and so eager to see people meet Jesus.

Skull Church, The Liberty Theatre, Fresh Life Radio, and Fresh Life Groups–all incredible doors of opportunity that God has illuminated and opened in the past year as we have taken steps of faith so that those stranded in sin would find life and liberty in Christ.

Aisle Seats in the Emergency Exit Row. For just that little extra bit of legroom and the ability to get up whenever I want. And “yes,” I am ready, willing and able to help in the event of an emergency.

Technology. Because I believe it exists to make Jesus famous (and because i am a big nerd.)

Billy Graham. Because he has shown what a life looks like that is focused like a laser on the cross. I am inspired to live my life as passionately obsessed with the gospel as he has.

What are you thankful for? Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done (1 Chronicles 16:8)
