    What … and who… are you thankful for?

      As we celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend, it’s a great time to pause… take note of the many blessings each of us have… and express our thankfulness. First, I thank God for just who He is, and all He has done through Jesus.  I thank Him for His mercy, grace, and unconditional love.  I thank Him for second chances, new beginnings, fresh starts. 

       I am thankful for my wife and my children.  I am thankful for the gift of adoption and foster care.  Life is incredibly challenging and hard, but I am grateful for the opportunity.  And I am so thankful to see these young people grow.

       I am thankful for the Eaglebrook family.  Your kindness and generosity, not only to me, but to this community, continues to bless me.  

      I am thankful for Heather and the crew at the Lakeland Times, along with those who made this year possible for us.  We are richly blessed.  

       I am thankful for kind-hearted, compassionate, and generous people. I am thankful for laughter, good friends, a warm meal, a glistening snow, a beautiful song, a cup of coffee.  I am thankful for rest.  All that, and I’m just getting started.  I want to practice everyday thankfulness.  So… what … and who… are you thankful for?  Would you take time to share that, and tell them? Have a blessed Thanksgiving weekend!  And that’s…real life. ~Pastor Steve – Eaglebrook Church
