Gratitude

Kara Powell | Nov 24, 2010

I love Thanksgiving. I love the food. I love the football. I love the fall weather (OK, Im a Californian so our fall might not be your fall, but nonetheless, I will be wearing a sweater tomorrowprobably). I love that its a holiday that doesnt come with the hassle and expense of buying gifts.

Today I am thankful for so many things. For a husband who is my biggest cheerleader. For my three kids who bring me so much delight. For the support of Fuller Seminary (there is nowhere else Id rather serve in ministry). For the fantastic FYI team (Brad, Irene, Cody, the deans and faculty who partner with us, the Fuller students who keep us fresh, the youth leaders who keep us real).

What are you thankful for?
