Thankful, Part I

I can get into a rut of envy--focusing on the things I wish I had in life, rather than what I do have. And I hate falling into that mode. My best solution is to make myself a list of things I am thankful for--it also helps me remember God's faithfulness. Some of my friends are posting things they're thankful for daily on Facebook. It's a great exercise. So, here's my start--the basics:
  • A loving, gracious and forgiving wife
  • Two healthy boys
  • A roof over my head
  • A paid-off car that runs well
  • Good, supportive friends--both new and old
  • A Bible-teaching, God-worshiping, diverse church
  • Good neighbors
  • Parks and playgrounds
  • Our extended family
  • A cupboard and refrigerator that never gets to the point of being empty
