Now that the holiday is about over, I’m sure you’ve heard all the normal lists of things for which we all should be thankful.
Like many others, I led prayer before today’s over-the-top gastronomical celebration, directing all present to give thanks for grace, mercy, family, freedom, and a host of blessings we don’t deserve. I even led us to remember those less fortunate during this joyful time.
Therefore, since you’ve already heard thanks for the usual blessings, let me close out this Thanksgiving holiday with a list of other things I’m thankful for.
- Zip-lock baggies.
- Cell phone service with no roaming fees.
- I’m not a vegetarian.
- Modern dentistry.
- Safe drinking water.
- Inexpensive firing ranges.
- Baby powder.
- A wife that hasn’t give up on me.
- New Star Wars movies.
- Background noise apps on my phone.
- Daughters who still believe in me.
OK, so #12 and #15 are from the “normal” list, but I couldn’t help it.
Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. – Psalm 106:1
