Thanksgiving

I'm thankful I don't have to measure my worth or my state in life only in terms of finances. Yes, one needs money to live, and I'm thankful my ends meet right now. If one were just to look at my income or my job titles, they wouldn't be all that impressive. I'm not trying to impress anyone either. Loving one another requires an outward focus anyway. I'm thankful for the many people I've gotten to know over the last few years.

I'm thankful we've been able to accomplish several major physical needs at the church building this year. Some of these were not planned like large sections of the roof which were damaged by wind in march and an office that got damaged by a leak exposed during excessive rain in May. The new boiler is in and operating, and the sanctuary is repainted.

One can also be thankful for the things one does not have. I'm thankful I don't have internet access directly in my home as that encourages me to read more books.

I'm thankful for time I'm able to spend with family, and meet new family members I have not yet met. I'm thankful I don't have to watch the news or be online in order to enjoy time with them.
