GratefulI am grateful for...

God who has saved me from my sin and has adopted me into His family.  He declared me righteous and has included me in His family inheritance.  There is no way I deserve this gift of grace but I am certainly thankful that God has given it to me.

For my wife of 24 years who has taught me in a tangible way what the grace of God looks like.  She is my fan, my critic, my friend, and my companion in this journey of life.  She has challenged me to become more like Christ and encouraged me as a leader.

For my two children who have brought joy to me by the way they live.  They continue to make good and godly choices.  They are defenders of the defenseless, they are servants in God's mission, they are leaders in the crowd, they are honoring to their parents and those in authority and they are passionate pursuers of God.

The pain and hardships of my life.  Over the years I have seen in hindsight that God was in all of it and that He was orchestrating His plans and purposes and He chose me to be an active participant in that plan.  Thank you God for allowing me to be part of your great plan.

For the Desert Streams Church family.  I have been a part of this family for 24 years and this family has been there for me in the good and the bad times.  They have grown with me, laughed with me, cried with me, prayed together, worshipped together, done life together.  I could not imagine walking this journey of life without this great church family.  I love you all and I am so grateful that GOd has seen it fit for me to be a part of this family.

I am blessed!  Thank you God for your amazing blessings.
