I am thankful for ...
  • An evening of pumpkin carving with my wife & kids.  Including the hug from the young one at the end.

  • Discovering that I have some minimalist pumpkin carving skills, after all.
  • The glorious taste of BLTs made with garden-fresh tomatoes.
  • Slow but steady (and visual) progress being made in cleaning up various disaster projects around the house.
  • Working alongside a pastor who knows how to speak the truth in love, and does so.
  • Playing on a worship band ... and being so comfortable with the band that I can focus on worshiping while playing, instead of focusing on playing.
  • Remembering how to start a cranky standard transmission by pumping the clutch ... which happened on the way to church this morning.  (How in the world did I remember that?
  • My parents, who are incredibly helpful and supportive grandparents.  We couldn't do half of what we do without their help.
  • A wife who is ... a help-mate, in every sense of the word.  My life is so much richer because of her.
To God be the glory.
