    Start small. That was the message on Sunday. Then your perspective will grow.
    Thankfulness allows me to see how much I have to give.
    Being thankful let’s me see my potential & the potential in others.
    God is good…..all the time.

    First of all I am thankful to God for all of the blessings He has given me. I am thankful for all the simple little things I have to make my life easier and more comfortable. There are so many things we can take for granted that may not be there tomorrow. It`s the same way with people. I am thankful for the people who cross my path each day. Who knows for sure if they will be there tomorrow for me to appreciate. I already know this in a big way. When there is someone or something to be thankful for, it is important to be thankful today, don`t wait. I like this Thanksliving. We can be grateful for all things big and small, each and every day.

    I am thankful for North Pointe being a “City on a Hill” . I am thankful for all the wonderful people I have met. I am thankful for all the wonderful times I have had and for what is still to come. I am thankful for everything all of the Pastors, the support team and volunteers do. I am very thankful to be able call North Pointe my church family. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    I’m grateful to God for putting me in the family He did. He is the Master planner!
    I’m grateful for all of my friends – new and life-long.
    I am grateful for all the adversity I have faced – in all areas of my life; living as a person with a physical disability, a small person, and a woman – it made me who I am. I’m still learning to embrace ALL of it, but getting there.
    Although I have not attended much, North Pointe has played an instrumental role!! Thank you!!!!

    I am grateful for: life (I would not know otherwise if I had not lived or been born). I give thanks for hope, of eternal life (something more greater than life itself would be totally amazing indeed). I give thanks for the beauty of creation which includes people and nature (for as far as one can see to all one sees that surrounds is wonderous at the best of times, for earth’s existence when one comprehends the vastness of the universe how can we not count it a miracle and a blessing for mankind. I give thanks for the mystery of what I do not see but exists in presence, God’s Kingdom, where mercy, grace is found and Spirit dwells in and among us every day. I give thanks and I am grateful for all I have to this day.

    I am grateful that for going on three years now my daughters HIV count has consistently and continuously come back as virus undetectable!! When we became a family through adoption, she was only two and a half years old, her viral load back then was extremely high – boarder line AIDS. I am grateful for Doctors. I am grateful for Medicine. I am grateful for Miracles!! I am grateful that God can use us for HIS purpose, no matter who we are. And that He loves us all the same. And I am grateful that at North Point we can come as we are.
