My Top 10 List for this year.
#10 - I am thankful for coffee. I really work hard at not drinking to much of the stuff and most days I don't. But I really love a good cup of coffee.
#9 - I am thankful for people who catch God's vision and perspective about life and ministry. When people can see what I see, it is refreshing and it gives me hope.
