Thankful

Every good and perfect gift comes from our Father above...thankful today for parents who always taught me that this was true.  Thankful for parents who raised me to know that I should be thankful every day of the year for the gift of salvation that comes through Jesus Christ alone.  I could never be more thankful for anything else than for the sacrifice that He gave to save me.  Because of this gift, of being a child of the Creator of the world, I have quite a few other things to also be thankful for this year.  I'd just like to take some time today to share a few of those with you...

4 days after the start of 2011 our most precious blessing of the year arrived...
thankful for a healthy baby girl.
The next months were filled with sweet memories of spending time with the best families anyone could ask for...
thankful for the love that is shared
In May, Ryleigh and I were able to see this beautiful girl graduate high school...
thankful for how the Lord works out all the details
May 19th, we celebrated 4 years of marriage...
thankful for the love of my best friend and opportunities to serve our Father together.
July was full of many new things, but one was being able to see this beautiful woman go on her 1st ever international mission trip...
thankful for her heart of service.
We arrived safely in Madagascar...
thankful for protection and a God who fulfills the desires He places in our hearts.
Our SWMada team (as of July) finally all got to be in the same place at the same time...
thankful for 3 new units that have now been added to this team!
The past 11 months have been full of memories, emotions, and most of all thankfulness...words can not express how thankful we are for all of our friends, prayer churches, prayer partners, the IMB, and every single Sunday School/VBS/GA/DT teacher along the way - you have each played an intricate role in our lives and for that we give Him all the glory!  We are thankful for you! Love you!
