Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for good stewardship. It's more important than we realize on an average day to manage the blessings for which we are responsible. Be it talent or time or money or items or gifts of the spirit or even our children and relationships with others. How we manage those—how we manage our lives—is quite a task.

Just so you know, the travel costs that Chad & I incurred on our trip to Asheville were not paid with Kyrie Foundation money. You gave that money to us to be used for the good of the foundation's mission to fund pediatric brain cancer research. Though it could be argued that the trip was a fulfillment of that mission, we would rather preserve your donations for the research or the means to raise funds for research.

And ... we rented our car through Avis on GoodShop! We bought our hotel using Priceline on Goodshop! The airfare, too, was put to good use. Isn't it great when there is meaning behind a purchase?

Oh, so thankful to have something to give.

What are you thankful for today?
