What Are You Thankful For?

18Sep07

We are working through a sermon series at TRF that talks to gratitude and thankfulness. Would you be able to help me with this? What I would love is for you to comment with 3-5 things that you are thankful for. I would love to see how you guys see gratitude.

I assure you that none of your comments will be used to blackmail you in any way 🙂

    ‘Ditto’ on all of Heather’s #8 except maybe about having ‘actual physical’ kids (since I don’t)to learn those lessons from, and pizza’s not my favorite (too many carbs and fat that I’d rather ‘spend’ on ice cream).
    D-

  17. D – That’s funny! My choice would probably be to go with the ice cream as well 🙂
