Can I only go to 30?  No way.  These are things I rattled off in about 1 minute.  If I tried to do a comprehensive list... we'd be here all day!  I could go on forever baby.  As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, may we remember to take the time to thank the Lord above for all of his blessings.
My mom shared a wonderful lesson on the ten lepers for our youth at church from Luke 17: 11-19.  Jesus healed TEN lepers and only ONE came back to thank him...  ONE.  It makes me so sad to think about how often I am like the other nine.  Going on with the everyday cares of my life, forgetting the one who made me whole. The one who life is all about.  The one who selflessly saved my soul by making the ultimate sacrifice.  I pray that I can be more like the one who fell on his face at the Lord's feet, giving him thanks.  This was such a wonderful Thanksgiving lesson from God's word.  Thanks Mo:)
 11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Happy short work week, everyone!  Did I mention how thankful I am that it is only 1 more day until we get to see our sweet Daddy?  :-)
