At the prompting of a friend who has told me, "Update your blog, Halloween is over," I thought I'd move on to the next holiday. :-)

During Bible class on Sunday, Bobby had us discuss what we were thankful for. There were the usual, expected answers of, "Family" "Friends" "Our house" "Electricity" "Church family", etc. Then he held up his Bible and said, "Okay, now tell me what you're thankful for in here." The answers came slowly at first, but then they came more steadily as everyone realized how much there was in the Word for which we are thankful.

Here are a few of the verses that I'm thankful for:

"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst." 1 Timothy 1:15

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:1-2

"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." Romans 8:26

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

"He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification." Romans 4:25

So, what Bible verses are YOU thankful for?

Happy Halloween

Well, it's a bit late, but Happy Halloween to you all, anyway. Here's how I carved my jack-o-lantern this year:
