Today has been proclaimed as an Aussie national day of thanksgiving. I particularly appreciated our governor general's thanksgiving message in which he urged us to give thanks to God and to one another for those who improve the lives of others in our community.
I'm grateful for
my mother who led me to Christ at the age of 5, enabling me to have a long life of enjoying the riches of being part of God's family
my lovely wife, Joan who has been a terrific companion for over 30 years
my four terrific kids: Daniel, Justin, Cathy and David
a great church
and a brand new minister who arrives today
the wonderful Christian blogging community
and other stuff too numerous to mention!
