Gratituesday

Today marks one week of being in Italy. As we look back on the week, there are many things to be thankful for! Some highlights include:

  • Sermonaudio.com - This is such a blessing to us right now. With it, we can listen to the pastor in Oregon while we sit on our couch in Italy. Without a church to go to here, we are still able to listen to Biblical Preaching and be fed!

  • Legs/Busses/Trains - Thank God for legs to carry us while we go out and deliver tracts. We were able to do several "blocks" in the last couple days. We will also love the busses and trains even more as we venture out farther in the next several weeks!

  • The Blessing of Children - We have the best children! Of course, yes, we are biased, but they truly are wonderful. They did so great on the airplanes flying over and they have been real troopers as we walk around town. They did pretty good with jet lag too. Now, we get to celebrate our youngest's 4th birthday today. Each one of them is growing up so quickly.

  • Compassionate Italians - We are so grateful for the Italians who will take a moment to be patient with us as we learn more of their language. As we go around town, we are meeting more and more people... at the store, the bakery, the produce market. This, we pray, will grow in to deeper relationships and we will be able to share Christ with them on a deeper level.

What are you grateful for today? Please share some of your thoughts and comments. If you'd like to read more blogs of others who are grateful, go to Heavenly Homemaker.

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
