What I’m Thankful For

What I’m Thankful For

I’m a list maker. It keeps me focused on what else needs to be done. I love crossing them off one at a time until there is nothing else needing my attention.

But the following list is not one I will ever be done with, nor am I crossing these off. It’s a list of things I’m thankful for in no particular order:

  • A faith that has held me when I couldn’t hold it
  • A God who is more stubborn than I am
  • Denise—she is self-explanatory
  • A family that works hard, plays hard, and gives much
  • Hilarious grandchildren
  • The chance to see the future unfold in the eyes of Trevecca students
  • The ability to write and enjoy books
  • Where I get to live
  • Driving a 10-year-old car past 250,000 miles so the university doesn’t have to buy me a new one
  • Three families whose large gifts have made Trevecca much better

That’s 10. I’ll stop there for now. I am a very rich man.


Make your own thankful list and post it in the comments. Don’t forget to download the free Scripture art of Psalm 136:6; you can find it here.

Happy Thanksgiving! May you and yours have a blessed holiday!
