It seems to me the trip from trick or treat to Christmas wish list, straight from give me or else to I want, I want, I want is much to fast.  Somewhere in here, there used to be time set aside for some thanksgiving.  So in a spirit of resisting cultural pressure, I want to express some heartfelt thanksgiving.

I’m thankful for a warm home to live in this morning, as the nights grow chilly.  I’m thankful for a wife who loves me unconditionally and two precious sons, who still seek their father’s advice and friendship even though they’re all grown up and on their own.  I’m thankful for the opportunity to rise this morning and work at a job that challenges and fulfills me every day.  I’m thankful for colleagues who are excited about their work and are dedicated to making a difference every day in the lives of our listeners.

And I’m also thankful for thousands of people committed to the same mission of making a difference on The Journey.  Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve. Thank you for your prayers and involvement with the Journey.  What an amazing two years it has been!

For 88.3 The Journey, I’m an extremely thankful General Manager Mike Agee.
