Thinking back on Thanksgiving

I am sitting here thinking about all the things I am thankful for. On the top of my list is my Saviour Jesus Christ, who as my son so sweetly says "died on the cross for all our sins, every last one of them."

I am thankful for a loving husband who takes an active role in raising our children, who works hard to support our family and to be a good example to our son of how a man should put God first, love his wife and his children.

I am thankful for the two miracles God chose me to be the mother of. They are such blessings and bring so much joy to my life. Austin Kieff is so smart and has such a passion for his heavenly Father. He loves reading and telling Bible stories, memorizing his weekly Bible verse and saying such sweet and honest prayers and words of praise. I pray his passion only gets stronger as he gets older. Caroline is an angel. I hope she takes after her brother. She is a little mischievous at times and I am loving every second of being her mom.

I am thankful for my wonderful, supportive, inspiring family.

I am thankful David and I both have good jobs for established companies with bosses who have solid values, strong work ethic and are willing to mentor.

I am thankful for our home, dependable vehicles and food in our pantry.

I am thankful for my church family, old and new and opportunities to attend either as I choose without fear or persecution felt in some areas of the world.

I am thankful to live in the United States of America and for the men and women who have sacrificed and are willing to sacrifice their lives for my freedom.

I am thankful for so many things and have enjoyed taking a few minutes to reflect ...
