It's after 10, and I'll read a bit and head to bed soon.  I have so much for which I am thankful.  I have such a beautiful family.  Today, like the previous few before, was quite challenging with Melia, Kylen, and Amy sick.  But I wouldn't want to be any other place than eating pot pies and ice cream and watching "Home Alone" with them. God has also blessed us with an amazing church family.  It blows me away that somehow God led all of these people to us.  The gifts, the hearts, the brains of these people-- it blows me away.  Thanksgiving reminds me of this, partially because so many of them are out of town.  God is doing some great stuff in Karis.  I'm just honored to be along for the ride as the leader.
