I woke up this morning to a great reminder, about WHY I should be thankful. I have read it hundred of times but now it was the Aha Moment! Thank you to my friend and former co-worker Vern Peterson for this reminder.
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
–1 Thess 5:18
It is GOD’S WILL in Christ Jesus that we be thankful.
“ALWAYS giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” –Eph 5:20
“I will EXTOL THE LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” Ps 34:1
“Through Jesus, therefore, let us CONTINUALLY offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his names.” –Heb 13:15
I am thankful beyond measure. I would write more but one of my big reason for thankfulness just came to play Othello with me… it’s time to devote the day to the kids.
May we forever be greatful! This is my 26th Thanksgiving in my adopted country of the United States.
God bless you all!
