What I am thankful for.
Like me I’m sure you would’ve noticed all the media and literature, quoting scientific studies that talk about gratitude being important to mental health and wellbeing, happiness and resilience. With family who live in America, I enjoy participating in Thanksgiving with them in whatever way that I can and I really do find it beneficial to learn what my family are grateful for.
As we come to the end of 2019, I look back on what was a challenging year on multiple fronts and I’m thankful for Grace — for love that cannot be explained, for a Creator that inspires creativity, for purpose and a hope that there is more to the story than we see. I’m also thankful for things to look forward to like holidays, Christmas and quality time with my family. From a work perspective I’m grateful to be part of a team that is engaged and passionate about protecting the mission of our church.
As a team, we have completed our 2015-2020 strategic plan goals and we are in the strategy planning process right now for the next five years. I’m really looking forward to 2020 and the opportunities ahead.
Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention you, our network of committed Adventist Christians who care for the lives and safety of others and who protect our mission every day. We couldn’t do what we do without you! May you be truly blessed this Christmas!
