“THANKFUL THURSDAY” ~ THE BURCHETT’S
A friend of mine has encouraged us to set aside Thursday’s as “Thankful Thursdays!”
As I have reminisced about this weeks events, my thoughts overwhelmingly turn to my childhood. A friend had asked about some pictures that I had stored away in my cedar chest. Looking through them was such a pleasure…It amazes me how a picture can so quickly take you back to a special moment in time. I even found myself singing songs from the 80’s that I hadn’t thought of in ages. I could almost smell the “Aqua Net”! Then yesterday, was a special day of remembrance to me. My childhood best friend’s dad had passed away 3 years ago. Such a great man! Again, more pictures were shared. I was reminded of my love for my BFF & her family…YEARS of special memories!
On this Thankful Thursday, my thoughts turn to two people that I am particularly thankful for today. Rev. Dwight & Mary Burchett…without them the pictures would all be so different…the memories just wouldn’t be the same. In their daily living & desiring to follow the leading of the Lord…they founded the school that I attended from 3rd to 9th grade. The biggest part of my childhood, some of my favorite memories, life changing experiences with the Lord, & best friendships are because they listened to & obeyed God’s calling on their lives. They still minister to me to this day!
Thank you Rev. Dwight & Mary Burchett! On this Thankful Thursday…I am thankful for YOU!!!
