I always enjoy thanksgiving. In my mind, this is the one holiday that has not been tainted by the ever imposing commercialism that is so apparent at other holidays. At the heart of it ---- thanksgiving is still about giving thanks. Granted that you do get enough sale ads in the newspaper ----- that one can literally fill up a small dumpster. In reflection on this year I have so much to be thankful for. I first of all thank the Lord for DeAnne and for all the blessings that she brings into my life. She keeps me grounded and causes me great joy. I also thank the Lord for four wonderful children. They have helped me to be a great father. I love hiking with them and exploring this wonderful world with their new eyes. But I also thank the Lord that he has called me to be a pastor. I have to say that it is the most wonderful calling ever. I hesitate to call it a "job", but I think I have the best "job". It is a true honor to serve the Lord and his people. To all of you, I thank you for your love and affection toward me. You all bring me great joy and I constantly thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for your presence in my life. My prayer is that all of you find much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
