    I am particularly thankful this year for two things:

    First, Carolyn with whom I have spent 32 years of marriage. She has been an amazing part of my life and has seen us through in many situations. She has such skill to see the ‘possibilities’ where i see only the ‘don’t want to do that’. I would have been a sad and lonely man were it not for her not to mention that I may not have found my way back to the Lord without her.

    Second, the strength of the Holy Spirit for this past year which has been filled with family, church and professional stress points. At this time they seem to be resolving themselves and now I can see some of what the Lord intended I learn from them. I still seek his voice and there will be more decisions to be made but I am beginning to see the road ahead.

    Every course over the last 5 years that I have taken at ACTS was my favourite at the time!

    As I reflect on thoughts of thankfulness, something that comes to mind often for me is the gift of music. In addition to the many music opporutnities I enjoy through worship ministry, I have been blessed to be able to have a music studio and teach music part time. Also I have the great joy of playing with a busy, working jazz group for the past five years. One of the members of our quintet is Doug Dunbar, a guitar player I met while playing in ACTS Chapel. The five of us are great friends, and we love the creative experience that comes through playing improvised music in the jazz genre. We have even had the opportunity to do a jazz vespers service at ACTS Chapel. The gift of enjoying music and playing it is something I am truly thankful for.
