A thankful prayer

I'm currently at the Catalyst West conference in Orange County, California hearing some really awesome leaders talk about how pastors can lead and love better and bigger. I am being refreshed by the music (Hillsong United) and having a great time with Pastor Tim and Tom... but I really miss Manda and Lijah (as we like to call him). My family is the most precious gift I've been given, besides my salvation, and when they're not with me I don't feel complete. I am a very blessed man who wants to remind you to thank God for the good things in your life. "Thank You God for allowing me to have a wife who not only is a tremendous support for me, but who also happens to be my dearest friend. Thank You for sending Elijah to us, and keeping him healthy... He's the sunshine in my day. Lord, You're beautiful, Your face is all I see. And when Your eyes are on this child, Your grace abounds to me.
