On Saturday I was thankful for safe travels as we returned home from our Thanksgiving visit with family. I was also thankful for the new tires we were able to put on Beatrice (our 15 passenger van) via a Black Friday sale, which made travel even more safe.
Today I am thankful for the fellowship of believers. They are my adopted family. I'm thankful for my Sunday School class, and those who encourage us each week. I'm thankful for the Pastor's Biblical teaching, the small group Bible Study we're in, and the friendships.
I'm especially thankful for the adults who teach my children or serve in nursery each Sunday and Wednesday. I'm thankful that they love my children, and that they minister to them joyfully. I'm thankful that they are patient with my shy children, and even more patient with my hyper children. May God renew their strength and patience this week so they can be ready for next week.
May God renew my patience, as well.
