On the way into church tonight, something really interesting happened…….

While most of the time, at Thanksgiving, we look back at this past year someone at church said something that sparked an amazing conversation.

A conversation that brought back memories from 6, 7 and even 8 years ago.

A conversation that brought to mind 5 different kids.

And several doctors all over the country.

And the charge nurse of an intensive care unit in Haiti.

And an adoption agency employee who traveled many hours to be in Miami “just in case” someone needed him. And someone did.

And a nurse in Miami who had a “gut feeling” about one of the girls. That girl is now in 3rd grade and doing well. Oh and the nurse – she happened to be my wife who was down helping out with a medical team after the earthquake in Haiti.

And a Senior Pastor in Miami who wasn’t afraid to call some of his friends and ask for a favor. Some of his friends who happen to be board members of a hospital.

Sometimes when you have a year that has a lot of struggles, when you have a year of wondering what God’s up to, when things don’t seem to go the way you think they should, it’s good to look a little farther.

Pastor Dave, thank you for reminding me that we have a lot to be thankful for. Thank you for reminding me of Sonia, and Elli and RoseLaure and Danny and Johnny and Susan and…….

God is good!

All the time!
