I am thankful for a little boy who was listening at church, even when I thought he wasn’t.

I know he was listening, because the speaker said he was grateful for the prayers that had been made on his behalf.

My young son whispered to me, “What’s a bee half?”

What are you thankful for today?

One parishioner complimented us saying we sang “with heartfelt humility.” I am so thankful to be able to praise God through music. 🙂
