Multitude 11.14.11

Giving thanks to God in community for His gifts ...

I'm so grateful for my family....this strong handsome man and these half dozen darlings.  For today's "multitude", I asked them each privately to share things for which they are grateful.  I was pleased with their quick, easy responses.  I found it interesting that they each share gratitude for many of the same things, but express it through their unique personalities.  This brings me joy.

Landen (15)
parents that care about what I do
house and clothes
doctors to help us with the pain
God - without Him there'd be no eternal happiness
forgiveness - without it there is only despair
