Re: Ho, ho, ho --- Merry Christmas! -- 2011 was very good to me.
Great post, Len.
Where to start? So much to be thankful for.
First of all, for the Creator of the Universe who loves us and has so much grace and blessing upon and for us despite our consistent rebellion against him (causing the universe to be in the mess it is) and the fact the He has provided a way for us to be restored to a right relationship to Him through his son Jesus Christ, despite our rebellion.
Secondly, for my wonderful family and friends that love me and have so much grace for me despite my many imperfections.
Third, for a free country and for those who have given their lives in defense of its freedom. Freedom isn't free.
For the opportunity to get out and enjoy God's beautiful creation and occasionally harvest a critter to fill the freezer.
Where to stop?
Oh...and I'm also very thankful to Len for creating and sustaining (others that help with this site as well--ss7mm comes to mind and I think Len's son Andy helps out too...) this website where I've learned so much over the years--thanks, guys, for putting up with me and helping me learn over the years!
