I’m thankful for …

Carl Hanson reminds teens to be thankful, and I’m grateful I “overheard” him say his piece.

Last night in our study we read Colossians 3:15-17, with the threefold mention of gratitude. (Three mentions in the same paragraph is sermonic!)

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (ESV)

I mentioned three things I was grateful for, that came immediately to mind:

1. The time I had with family in the U.S. while there recently;

2. I’ll tell you this one on Saturday, a Very Important Date for our family;

3. The successful launch of FR, thanks to so many of you.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
