What am I Grateful For?

I know I should be telling you all about what the good news is. But I need to take a break and tell a little about what on Earth that I am grateful for. I am generally not a grateful person as much as I need to be, so I want to take some time to rant about all the things in the world that are wonderful.

9 – Blogger’s easy Picture Add In Method…
Now I know that I said I was going to be grateful, however this one will is extremely sarcastic. I have been working on this post for 30 minutes (on the pictures alone, but i can’t get it to work. Just use your imagination…)

8 – Music
What a strange thing. Making strange sounds with your voice can bring such sweet joy to your life. Add some strings being plucked and some drums being beat on and it has the ability to change your life. I am very thankful for Jars of Clay, David Crowder Band, and Siler’s Bald (even though I haven’t really ever had a Siler’s Bald CD, but Ethan Pitsch does.)

7 – Mountains
Now I know that they aren’t very abundant in Indy, but I love this huge rocks. They point up to the sky and just force you to realize your smallness. They are beautiful and make me happy. I like them a lot… Especially when they have old people on them.

6 – Great food.
God has blessed the Earth with so many WONDERFUL variations of food. We could just all eat grass like cows, but no we can eat the cow. Or the Chicken, or my favorite, seafood. Last week I was blessed to enjoy the Ultimate Feast at Red Lobster. I love lobster tail, crab legs and shrimp. This had all. I thank you so much God for such a wonderful selection of food to eat. I am excited thinking about it. Here is a pic…

5 – Lazy Sunday Afternoons
I didn’t get to really enjoy one of these today, but it was still a good day. I love having a day where I get home from church, the weather is very favorable (mid 80’s) and having nothing to do on Sunday from 1-8pm. Just sit back enjoy the sun, read, and sleep. Rest in God. Rest in peaceful moments. Here’s a picture of a lazy river… also pretty great

4 – My Friends
I have been blessed with some great friends for a long time. I’ve known Nick Epple and Jordan Heid for roughly 18 years. I have known many other friends for 10+ years. I am blessed to have so many friends for so long in such a short life of mine. God continue to bless my friendships and may we continue challenge one another towards Godliness.

3 – My Family
I love my family a lot, even though I probably don’t every really show it like I should. I think that God has blessed me so much and that I am very much in debt to him for having a family that loves one another so well. I am thankful that my parents love one another and work hard to keep us together. I love my bro Adam and his beautiful wife Sarah. I would never admit it but Adam has always taught me a lot about life and I am very thankful for him. I am thankful for my “little” bro Alex and that he still realizes that I can beat him in everything, including basketball, wrestling, racing, and I’d probably be a better hunter if I didn’t have reservations about killing Bambi. I love you guys a lot. PS check out my site.

2 – My girlfriend.
the Beautiful and gracious Victoria Pitsch. I thank God for you. You are beautiful on the inside and on the outside. May God bless our love and friendship and may he lead us in all areas of our lives. (thankfully not too many people read this site, so you shouldn’t blush that much) Here’s a picture of her pretty face.

1 – My God

My rock, savior, deliverer, peace, comfort and everything. He made it all and has blessed me with every good thing in him. Oh my God, how I love you and thank you for being here in my life and touching me in all the ways that you do. You are so wonderful and amazing and make my life great. I can never thank you for any small thing you’ve done, yet I will try the rest of my life.
