There is so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving 2017. Here is my top 10:

  1. My wife, Rachelle. She is the ultimate blessing to me every day!
  2. My sons, Kaden and Carder. Carder is in Africa right now serving, Kaden will go over spring break (March 2018). I’m so thankful for their hearts for service.
  3. Pulse Student Ministries. Our Pulse Band led worship yesterday. It was incredible! Watch the service. The band is just a small taste of the 100 students that connect at Pulse each week.
  4. Turkeys 😊  I’m thankful that we had 30 Thanksgiving meals to pass out last week to families in need in our community.
  5. Taco’s 😊 Our taco meal on Sunday paid for the majority of the Thanksgiving meals that we were able to deliver.
  6. Visitors! Every week we have more and more people visiting church. Many are a direct result of a friend inviting them. What a blessing!
  7. Parking Problems! Yep, multiple times in 2017 we ran out of parking and had to park people in the grass. Wow!
  8. Babies. Sunday night I got to hold a new baby born 10 days ago. More babies are due for delivery in Dec, Jan, Feb. and beyond.  Prayers for healthy pregnancies.
  9. Life Groups. We had a “Warm Up” thanksgiving meal with our group last night. During one story being told, I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to pee my pants! So much fun!
  10. Time for Resting! My wife, Rachelle, and I plan to rest on Thursday and Friday. We need to rest because God has some great things planned out for December and beyond! Stay tuned!
