January 17--giving thanks for 3 more things


I am thankful today for getting free VIP tickets to the SC Presidential Debate last night.  I am thankful for these aspects:

First of all, because it was just plain ole fun to be there with a crowd of people who were energetic.
Secondly, because it was so interesting to see these candidates live. We sat about 6 rows back and got a good view.
Thirdly, because I got to see some Fox News people and some sat right across from us.
Fourthly, a little girl --about 7 or so sang the National Anthem and she had an outstanding amazing voice. She sat behind us and she was able to get all the candidates signatures. (No, I didn't go up and get signatures, lol).

I love debates and it was a blast to be there in person. My hands actually got sore from the clapping! It was just a fun date night for my hubby and myself. Now, I have to decide who to vote for this week in our SC primary ;-) But I am reminded of this quote from St. Antony,

"For the whole of earth is a very little thing compared with the whole of heaven".

Still---I am thankful that these little gifts are a reflection of grander gifts that we look forward to as we enter into his fullness.

  1. I'm glad you had the opportunity to attend the debate. We watched it on tv.

  2. I think it would be very interesting to be at one of these in person. I don't have to like a candidate to be interested in what he/she has to say. I think this year I just keep listening for anyone to say something I want to hear. As of yet...well...anyway. It is certainly not a dull political year. It is too bad we can't pick out a few traits from each person and each side and make one good president.

  3. That does sound like fun! USA politics are very different from Canadian, I don't understand US politics at all.
    Hugs, Cindy

    This book was recently sent to me. I am reading it, and enjoying it very much!!
