Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and a good reputation in the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

It’s been a crazy year around my home, which has resulted in less time to devote to things like writing for this blog. However, it isn’t a bad thing. God has been working faithfully in stretching and growing my family in ways that we haven’t been before. As a result, I can look back and see that we have all grown in new and more profound ways.

My wife and I now have new habits that strengthen and nurture our marriage such as reading each night before we tuck in for the night. Our kids are helping us raise pigs which introduces more opportunities for us to teach them ideas such as responsibility and diligence.

Last year I shared in this post that we should never stop counting our blessings. So, as another year passes and you get ready to go into the chaos of the holiday season, don’t forget to stop and look around at your life and count all the ways in which God has been faithful and let it be an example for how we are called to be faithful.

Happy Thanksgiving! May God bless and keep you through another season.
