Thanksgiving 2015

Thursday, November 26, 2015

It is good to give thanks to the Lord .... Psalm 92:1a

Today is Thanksgiving, a day where we gather with family and friends to feast on turkey and "all the trimmings" or whatever is traditional for your family. Many have the custom of going around the table and each person stating what they are thankful for this year. We will be spending the day with friends as our family is spread across the country.

This year we have had many blessings and look forward to more in the coming year, there have been some trying events in our life. I thank the Lord for these for they have made me stronger, in body, mind, and spirit.
A wonderful man who blessed our lives for many years use to say,"What has the Lord done for you today"
Well, this year I’m thankful for these and many more:
emoticon The wonderful love of Jesus and God's grace.
emoticon My husband who has been supportive of situation with my mother, and dealing with his son's diagnosis of melanoma

emoticonThe blessings of our children and grandkids
emoticon Extended family and friends, who love unconditionally

    Not always easy, but I recently found that even in a disaster you can find good and give thanks. It's where we allow our focus that will determine our attitude
