Hope you are well.
I have undertaken a new twitter rhythm (you can read more about it here) and Tuesday is thankfulness. This is inspired in part by the blogging on thankfulness by Sharon Roberts and Tuesday thanks on Becca Dean’s blog.
So, here just ten of my things to be thankful for…
Over the past few years I have grown more and more excited about Advent and this year I have been reading a prayer book entitled – “Come thou long expected Jesus” which uses some of the hymns of Charles Wesley and advent scriptures. Thankful for the great hymns and for Paul Wesley Chilcote for writing the book.
2. Life Group
Love being part of family and I love the group of peeps we do life with. On one level it is a sad day today as we say goodbye to one particular family as they follow God’s lead. But, we’re looking forward to blessing them. We are very thankful for their contribution, fellowship and friendship over the last few years.
3. Winter Night Shelter
The Eastbourne Winter Night Shelter starts on Thursday. Thankful that people have followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting and have started this project. May God over answer our prayers for this work.
Amazing project that has supported well over 600 people in Eastbourne so far, with an emergency three day food supply. Great people doing an amazing job.
5. Tree outside our house
I love our tree. Thankful for the spring, summer and autumn colours it has given us. I know its a bit weird but I do miss it during the winter.
We love music in our house, if it is not on somewhere, someone (usually Mrs Blunders) will be singing. I love the creativity, the inspiration, the emotion and the call for a response that encompass music. I love that God designed these relatively few musical notes and then let us loose with them.
7. Big Bang Theory (TV Series)
I love this program, great end to a day! Thankful for humour.
I have been thinking and thankful recently about those who have influenced and mentored us over the past few years. Mrs B and I are especially thankful for Dave and Sharon Roberts for their influence, encouragement and friendship.
Love Mrs B and love my boys! Very thankful for them all!
10. Tea and Coffee
Both help the working day go down!
Hope you have a great day, may you stay thankful and if you haven’t already please join us on #3goodthings this evening on Twitter.
Grace and Peace,
Father God, may we stay thankful this and every day. May we remember your blessings, your mercy and your grace. May we turn each thankful thought back into praise to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen
