Gratitude, Thankfulness – Is There Enough Or Could There Be More?



There are so very, very many things in life to be grateful for!

In today’s hustle and bustle, do we properly show our gratitude for what we have and for what God has given us? And if we have, do we do it often enough?

After a number of events in my life, I can honestly say, I have not always given the Thanks or shown the Gratitude due to either those around me such as my wife, family or friends or to the one who has given me ALL!

Remembering that TODAY is the First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life; have you Thanked God – just for TODAY – today?

As a survivor of several heart attacks, lung surgery, stage 4 cancer and seemingly countless numbers of events in life, especially in a 22 year military career, that easily classify as ‘close calls’, I still frequently need a reminder to give Thanks and be Grateful for what I have, what I’ve been given and the prospect of Eternity in Heaven in my future.

Turn off any distractions, such as your TV and click here to see a lovely video which reminds us of just a few of the things we should be grateful for:

Oh, by the way, thank you for reading and thank you for watching. Praise God in Thanks – FOR TODAY!!!

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
