I'm thankful for our wood-burning stove! It is my favorite part of our home in the winter! It is amazing how cozy and warm it keeps the whole house.
I am also very thankful for our church family! Everyone at our congregation is wonderful and so loving and we all work together for the good of the Lord's body. Today we went to a birthday party for one of the little girls in my Bible class, she was turning three. They had pizza to eat and cake for dessert. I was so hungry, but couldn't eat either item because of my gluten intolerance. I about cried when the little girl's mother came up and handed me a grilled chicken spinach salad and a box of gluten-free cookies!! Even amidst all of her preparations for her little girls birthday party, she remembered to think of me and my dietary restrictions. I told her truly, that was one of the most thoughtful things anyone has ever done for me!! This is the kind of love and concern we all share at our congregation!! It's such a blessing - and one I am so thankful for--my brothers and sisters there mean the world to us!
