This week’s Thankful Thursday is from Jani Dahlin, Pastor of Children and Adult Discipleship at Praise Community Church.
Three things I am thankful for today . . .
[ one ]
The 7 wonders of the world . . . touch, smell, taste, hearing, sight, feeling, thought. I received this in an email this week and could totally relate to how these “7 wonders of the world” were much more relevant to my world than the actual “7 wonders of the world” which I am likely to never experience in person (although I have been to the Taj Mahal if that counts). They are the lenses through which all of life is experienced and they truly are wonders to even the most intelligent of our world. They are true expressions of God’s great power, intelligence, love, and creativity.
[ two ]
A solid family. Both my family of origin as well as my husband and six children. I say “solid” not because we have it all together. But “solid” in the sense that we are fully committed, rooted in Christ, and know we are ultimately hedged in from behind, before, and all around with the wisdom, love, and power of the Lord. My parents and all 5 of my siblings and their spouses are believers and so are all the members of my immediate family. Knowing many other families who do not have this foundation helps me realize all the more what a wonderful thing it is to have that sense of being on a “solid” foundation. Where things aren’t what they should be, there is always an assured hope they will be one day.
