My daily gratitude for:
- This sunrise off the back porch at my brothers house. Beautiful.
- Watching Liz and Ryan hold hands and grow closer together.
- Southside Church of Christ, and how they have nourished and provided community for Josh, Jacqui, and their kids.
- My professors at Pepperdine who helped challenge me to learn, write, seek goodness, think, and have faith in more mature ways.
- Chad and Jennifer Huddlestlon, and their incredible passion for Christ and as great passion for the people in Japan. They were such a calming and wise presence during my summer in Japan in 2002.
- The arrival of Advent, my favorite season of the year.
- A good night of sleep in a warm bed.
