Today is the traditional day of eating Turkey, spending time with family, and watching the Lions football. The Lions are carrying a 33-32-2 record into the 68th edition of the Thanksgiving Day Classic. We play the Green Bay Packers this year, which is the team we have played the most and have a 11-5-1 record against them in the 17 games we have played them. I am hoping that this year we can beat them again and keep our overall winning record on Thanksgiving Day. And get the Lions off of their current 2 game losing streak. GO LIONS!!!
As you sit down to enjoy your feast take some time and think of all the things that you are grateful for this past year. Some of us have gotten married, some have had babies, some have had the interview of our lives, but all of us have had something that we can be grateful for.I know that I am grateful that I had the opportunity to go to NYWC in Atlanta and promote YMX this past week. I am also very glad that I had the opportunity to meet Marko of Youth Specialties fame and found out that he is a total class guy with a huge heart for God and youth workers. Thanks, Marko! It was an honor.
I am also grateful for my wife and kids who have kept me sane during this time of transition as we seek out a place of ministry for us. It has been a long haul, but I am so glad that we have done it together. I am also especially grateful for my wife, whom I will be married to for 12 years in a few weeks, she is a truly amazing woman and I can not think of anyone else that I would have wanted to go through the past 12 years of highs and lows with.
So take some time today and think of the things that you are thankful for.
