I am so thankful!

God is good all the time! Isn't it true that we sometimes forget to stop and think on how good God has been to us? It sometimes takes Thanksgiving to remind us to thank the Lord for his blessings. That should not be so. I am as guilty as anybody else in that regard. I am thankful for so much..... here's just a small list:
The Lord saved my wretched soul! (shouting!!!!!)
The Lord gave us the King James Bible, His very Word!
The Lord gave me a great wife and entrusted with two awesome kids!
The Lord put me in the greatest church in the world! (Thank you Church Hill Baptist!)
The Lord gave me a pastor who is a true friend and mentor. (Thank you Pastor Wiley)
The Lord gave me a very Godly heritage!
The Lord called me into the ministry!!!!!!!!!!
The Lord desires to use somebody like me (I still can't get over that)
The Lord gave me a tremendous extended family.
The Lord gave me some of the greatest friends one could ever have.
The Lord gave me hands and feet that work, a brain that functions (well, most of the time) and the ability to work to earn a living.
The Lord gave me a warm house to sleep in and food on the table.
The Lord allowed me to be born in America, the greatest country in the world!
The Lord gave us soldiers that have fought for our country ever since it's founding. Many of these soldiers have bled and died for our freedom.
The Lord allowed me to be called to Maine, the state I love.
The Lord allows me to come boldly to the throne of grace whenever I like.
The Lord gave us 1 John 1:9.
Gotta stop now. I need to go pray and thank Him for how good He is!
Let us never get over how good God is to us
