today I am thankful

for so many things. At the top of the list are my faith and my church family, My children were given some news lately that was very hard for them to deal with. their dad is moving to Florida in January, While I think this is a good move for him it is, of course, very unsettling for them to say the least, I shared this as a prayer concern for my children at church yesterday and the response of love and support was overwhelming and humbling, Again I wonder how people with no faith survive the major tragedies and difficulties in their lives. God has carried my family through so much in the last few years and continues to do so faithfully and in so many ways.

Another very cool thing at church is watching the way they have embraced and welcomed Allen into our extended family. Already he is being involved in call to worship, special music and co-teaching a Sunday school class. It is great to see him feeling so much at home in the church we call home.
