The Grateful Book

By Michael Tidwell


In our home, sitting on the fireplace mantle, is a little leather notebook.  We call it The Grateful Book.  From time to time, each of us will write something that we are grateful for.  Most of the comments would be considered trivial but yet we are still grateful for them.  


I would like to share a few comments that have been written:


I am thankful for…


* Heat in the car

* Animals

* A house to call our own

* Chick-fil-A on the way to work

* The Bible

* A Mom and Dad that love me

* Jesus dying on the cross


I will admit that “Chick-fil-A on the way to work” was one that I had written down.  It does not rank up there with the life changing experiences of my life, but nevertheless I am still grateful.  As a Christian, we have the God given ability to find Joy in everyday life.  Nothing is wrong with enjoying the gift that God has given to us called, Life. 


Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

He counts it a honor to be involved with Eagle’s View, BYC and serving as a evangelist. They enjoy being outdoors, traveling and above all serving the Lord.
