Ten things I'm thankful for:
1. It's not 40 degrees outside.
2. The water in my shower has more than one temperature option.
3. My house is not on wheels.
4. Electricity.
5. I am not single parenting 9 teenagers.
6. Shade in abundance.
7. My neighbours cannot hear me snore.
8. Toilets that flush.
9. Privacy.
10. Solitude.

The ten best things about Creation:
1. The music. Especially Newsboys. INCREDIBLE show.
2. The speakers. Passionate. Eloquent. Timely. Relevant. Moving. Inspiring.
3. The atmosphere. Lively. Enthusiastic.
4. The community. Camping with friends is awesome. Sharing. Working together.
5. The conversations. Talking around the wading pool. Visiting under tarps.
6. The teens. SO many of them in our group. All beautiful. All "good".
7. The trips to the river. Cooling. Refreshing.
8. The scenery. Takes my breath away every time.
9. The facilities. Those honeybuckets got cleaned out twice daily. And our water needs were always met.
10. The worship. Oh yes. The worship. "Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be the name..."
