We give thanks

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone.  We're now headed towards Christmas. I know we ask this question at this point every year . . . where has this year gone?!  As we look back on the 2010, we find ourselves thankful for many things.  Here are just a few:

We have a new granddaughter.  Charis Lynlee Bohler was born July 14, which means that she just celebrated her 4 month birthday!  On December 17, she will join her parents, Kelsey and Zach, and come to Franklin for her first visit to Mimi and Poppy's house.  

Whitney and Shawn are doing great, living 8 minutes away from us (but who's counting?).  It's such a blessing to have them close by ~ perfect for a spontaneous meal or a quick trip to an antique mall or the farmer's market.

Both of our dads have dealt with cancer this year, and we thank the Lord that He is sustaining them day by day.  They are beating the odds.  Or more accurately, God is working in their bodies, doing more than we could ever ask or imagine.

We are blessed to be involved with some incredible ministries.  Dick is still playing for Steve Green, Mel is back at FBC Columbia, Dick and Mel are on the road in between those two things leading worship and doing concert events.  Very, very grateful for these wonderful opportunities.  

To celebrate Thanksgiving, we made a quick trip to Ohio to be with Mom and Dad Tunney. Keebler came along (he's a fabulous traveler!) and we all had a great visit. 

Here's Mom, getting ready to serve a delicious meal.

Dick and his dad, enjoying some special time together.

Dick's sister, Ginny, and our brother-in-law, Dave, came by to say hello.

Hope you and yours had a blessed Thanksgiving.  But more than that, we hope that you are thankful for all God has done and is in the process of doing in your life!
