It is just after 8:00 am as I type this. My family, dog, and cat are all sleeping peacefully. The house is quiet. Soon we will all be awake, eating our canned cinnamon rolls (family tradition from way back) and awaiting the feast. I will put together my broccoli-rice casserole, and we will prepare to fry the turkeys. Somewhere, though in all of this preparation, we must remember the reason for this day.
I do not have to think long to realize what I am thankful for. I am thankful for my God, His son Jesus, and His Spirit. What a wonderful trio to have on your side. I cannot imagine my life without them. I am thankful for my family, both immediate and extended. I think that many of us would say that. I am thankful for my health. Very thankful.
Please take a few minutes this year, and seriously give thanks.
This post is short, but I wanted to at least remind myself to give thanks.
