Thanksgiving Top 10

For the past 12 years I have posted my list. It began as an attempt to bring awareness to the “Power of the Pen on Paper.” In the past, I would share this list at our Wednesday mid-week service at Free Chapel, but since moving to TN, I continue to see the benefits in simply noting these things and posting on my website and social media. Of course, some are very serious and others are meant to generate a courtesy laugh, but all of the these 10 have a certain relevance in my life. I CHALLENGE YOU TO WRITE YOUR LIST AND POST IT.  List making is powerful and focuses our attention on the important.

2016 Thanksgiving Top 10

  1. I woke up this morning. Thankful for the opportunity of another day.
  2. My Keurig (one cup) coffee maker. (game changer in the morning)
  3. Change of Seasons in the South. (Beautiful leaves, cool nip in weather and a sweater)
  4. MY JOB. Millions are out of work or hate their job. I enjoy all of the opportunities God has provided for me to provide for my family.
  5. Chimichangas, Chips and Salsa and a Coke. Enough said!
  6. A Healthy family- Grandparents, My Parents and all of us that have our health. (WE are Praying for those of you that are fighting health battles)
  7. America- Not perfect, but still the Envy of all other Nations of the world. We STAND for our National Anthem, Salute our Flag and Sing God Bless America.
  8. High School / College Athletics. (I love to watch kids compete for the love of the sport- not because they get paid)
  9. Psalm 23 and 27, Phil. 4:13 and John 3:16 (passages from the Greatest book ever written)
  10. A home with a fireplace, an incredible wife and 2 wonderful children. What a Country! What a Savior!
  11. A wonderful Church @nccog and Pastor Mark Williams who provide hope and wisdom each week for all of us attending. I hope you are actively involved in a great Church.

Yes, I posted 11 because I always needed the bonus question in school to push me over the top. Like you, I could list 100 things I am thankful for, but I hope these few cause you to Think, List and Post. It’s a humbling exercise. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from the Richie Hughes Family. God bless you all.
