    I’m going to open this up today…but I hope we can keep to the theme…which is simply giving thanks to God for our faith communities, friends, and family…whether it’s family through blood, Spirit, or choice.

    I didn’t allow comments yesterday because I just wanted to give thanks…to God and all those who have enriched my life…without the inevitable pushback you get on social media.

    I’ll be out much of the day…I’ll check in as I’m able.

    Michael,

    I can’t count all the times God has met my deepest need through a fellow believer-sometimes a person I didn’t even know! It is a blessing and a reminder of what will be someday when we get to heaven.

  3. Michael says:

    Linn,

    Amen and amen!

    I met with a pastor today who wisely advised me regarding two major decisions in my life. Guy Gray.

    He counseled me about leaving my job as a cop to become the lead pastor of Calvary Salem and to step aside after 20s to hand my church off to another and assume an assistant pastor job in Medford.

    My time with him today got me to thinking that I am thankful for people in my life who give me wise godly counsel.

    And God knows I need people who love me enough to tell me the truth

    I recently was able to reconnect with a friend that I hadn’t seen in fifteen years. He bought a book from me online. I asked him if he was the same guy I knew. The crazy thing is he actually moved to a place three hours away from me. We met a couples months ago. It was nice to have catch up and fellowship. Funny thing is God used him to bring me to the Lord while he was backsliding. After a crazy turn of events he got back to following Jesus. We talk or text once every couple weeks, sometimes more. I am thankful for our rekindled friendship and our mutual faith in the Lord. He was there for me the other day at a super low point when I really needed someone to simply listen.

    Officerhoppy,

    He’s paid a high price for wisdom…

  9. Michael says:

    Shawn,

    I’m glad he was there for you…and that God orchestrated his return to your life…it’s truly a sign of His care for you.

  10. Michael says:

    Em,

    I know where I’d be…and it isn’t a good place…

    Yeah. Wisdom if his sort doesn’t come cheap!

    Officerhappy, AMEN
    i had a ‘mystical’ experience when we lost our first son to encephalitis.
    in the limo on the way to his graveside service my mother (not a Christian) snarled, ‘You never loved that child!”

    I’m so thankful that God put so many Godly men and women in my life. I am extremely thankful for Michael and this community of believers. You were with me during a huge heartbreaking time. Your prayers, teachings, encouragement and friendship have been a beautiful unforgetable blessing in my life

    I will always have you in my heart and prayers. Much love. Always!
