Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

Years ago, our family was headed out of town on vacation after some really difficult days at the church. My husband asked that we not discuss anything about the church while we were gone. I snapped, "Well, if we don't talk about the church, there's nothing left for us to talk about." He responded by creating a two-page, single-spaced list for me of discussible topics. The list reminded me of how deep our relationship ran throughout our lives.

A friend of mine has put forth a challenge to create a list every day between now and Christmas which lists 5 things we are thankful for. The only thing is you cannot repeat anything from day to day. She says the first days will be easy because there are obvious things in our lives that we're thankful for . . . our families, our churches, our friends, our health. Down the way, though, we'll have to dig deeper to discover the depth and abundance of God's blessings in our lives.

My list is pretty long already, but today I'm most thankful for a 6-year-old boy who named me himself and loves me unconditionally. What a gift! Are you willing to share something you're thankful for?

I like that challenge -- listing 5 things a day that I'm thankful for -- I think I'll share it with my church family. Thanks.
