Be thankful on Thanksgiving

Here is an excerpt from my book about being thankful

Steve, Sandy and I were asked to play at the Charismatic Conference. Speakers at the conference included Father Larry Richards and Mark Nemo, a wonderful speaker from Keyna who now resides in Chicago. Mark performed a skit that I will never forget. He brought three participants to the stage. Each was given a big balloon by the actor who was playing the part of God. One participant was afraid and sat on the balloon, another broke it in anger, but the third participant was grateful. He played with the balloon joyfully and began to throw it to others in the audience with complete abandonment and hillarious joy; the balloon was then thrown back to him. Of coure the balloon bounced in several weird ways which made it even more colorful. The message; use your gifts, be thankful and share.
