32 Things

1. Jesus Christ--The Savior who is always loving, always faithful, always patient, and always leading me closer to Him.
2. Joshua Redin--my amazing husband who serves our family and loves God wholeheartedly
3. Caleb Redin--the most loving, kind-hearted three-year-old I've ever met
4. Annabelle Redin--the silliest, joy-filled, most playful girl on this planet
5. Jonah Redin--for his sweet smiles, snuggles and expressive eyes
6. RHC--our church here in Singapore that passionately loves Christ and teaches Truth
7. Extended Family (if I listed everyone that would take up the rest of the 32 items)--so thankful that nearly everyone in our extended family is a brother/sister/father/mother/grandmother not just in this passing world, but a brother/sister in the shining world to come.
8. Friends--For long-time friends and new ones. For best friends that trek across the world to share our experiences in Singapore, and for neighbor friends who trek down the hall to say hello. For friends that I talk to every day, and for friends who send an email out of the blue every few months.
9. Health--For the last year which has been relatively sick-less. A minor cold here and there but no major battles.
10. Daily bread--For the daily food and water we have in abundance. . . in a time when many around the world are suffering for lack of food and drinkable water.

--Okay, done with the serious stuff. . . from here on out, there is no particular order and no particular depth =)
