    What Are YOU Grateful For?

    Post  Paeter on November 11th 2013, 8:47 pm

    I'm interested in some feedback I can share on the podcast. As you take a moment and consider where God has placed you in life today, what are you grateful for? Whether it's weighty or trivial, I'm interested in whatever pops into your mind!

    Off the top of my head:

    -My boyfriend, who I can enjoy hours-long geeky conversation with and who can always make me smile
    -A good job and a safe and comfortable house (as the least financially-successful member of my immediate family, sometimes I have to remind myself not to be envious, and that I still have more than I need)
    -Hot running water, indoor climate control, and fast reliable communication; the top three reasons I'm glad I live in this century
    -Imagination (both mine and others')
    -Azaleas. As far as I can tell, they're not good for anything practical, but for about two weeks a year they look gorgeous... it's silly, but it helps confirm to me that God made the world to be enjoyed, not just endured.

    Family, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ

    Roof over my head, food in my belly, and steady income (all things I tend to take for granted)

    My wife for more reasons than I can count

    The Star Wars universe, where I mentally live as I go throughout my day. (Hospitals = medcenters, my IT job title = slicer, my car = land speeder, church = temple, students = younglings. Okay, am I totally a geek or just mentally unstable?)

    You cracked me up there, Drew, so earned some geek cred. Smile

    I'm grateful for
    • salvation..I am so unworthy.
    • My wife...ditto.
    • My kids...I pray for the last two's salvation and that I can bring them all up in the Lord.
    • My church...especially my pastor, but also the family there.
    • My job...they have a good sense of a balanced life.
    • Electricity....only takes a short while without it to realize that almost everything I do and enjoy depends on it.
    • CGC...especially Paeter for all he does in bringing us together. It's because of him that I re-discovered board/card games which has become my newest hobby which has brought great time of fellowship and even witnessing opportunities.

    That's enough for now. Smile

    Aw shuck, Whiteboy. Thanks. I'm grateful for what God has brought about here. I'll also add that I'm grateful for:

    my boys, who have been driving me nuts lately.
    Man Of Steel, the best superhero movie I've seen in the better part of a decade
    My wife, my most faithful audience member
    God's ridiculously tireless mercy toward me
    The Tactical RPG Video Game Genre
    The opportunity to serve God creatively and share truth with others

    • my Father in heaven, Who despite my tiny belief and shockingly rebellious heart continues to surprise me with His fatherly provision, love and protection

    • my parents, my most faithful supporters in this earthly life

    • All of nature and creation, but cute furry animals in particular. Not only are they absolute proof to me that God exists Very Happy, but also that He is very creative, has a fun sense of humor, likes at least some of His pets to be soft, furry and cuddly and has copied that part of His heart that enjoys them and pasted it straight into my heart. Very Happy

    • God's manifold wisdom, represented - among other things - in each one of us. Makes it very worth while to develop a keen and authentic interest in other people, for God will surprise you with some traits of His own that you may have missed until then Wink
