There is all of the hoopla about Thanksgiving, you know the hoopla that gets into politics, religion, the whole bit. I think the concept of Thanksgiving, at least for me is quite simple. Throw out all of the politically correct agenda, throw out all of the assumptions. At least for me, I will break it down to the simplest of things.
I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, my Forgiver and Leader, Jesus Christ.
I am thankful for my family, my wife was my second salvation, my daughter was among God’s great gifts, my son, is a reminder of the blessings God will give when you least expect them.
I am thankful for my friends. Yep, even friends built online. While some see the internet as a dangerous thing, and it can be, it can also be a wonderful thing that brings people together from around the world.
I am thankful for The Virtual Pew, God has granted me the desire of my heart for ministry, and even provided a way to keep it going for over a year now.
I am even thankful for my pets, they love me even when I am short with them.
I am thankful for little things like my ears where I can listen to wonderful music, the voice of a friend, or the silence of darkness.
I am thankful for my eyesight, I can see a beautiful Kansas sunset and be reminded of the greatest artist of all, God, most every evening.
I am grateful for so much, more than I sometimes realize. I am thankful for you, for taking the time to read this and the other things I write. I am blessed to think that God sometimes uses my words to inspire, motivate, and cause others to think about God, Spirituality, love, and sometimes so much more.
What are you thankful for? I promise, there is something, think about it, then give thanks.
God bless you, and a Happy and wonderful day to you, no matter what day it is you read this.
Love to all in the name of the one who gave the ultimate gift of love, Jesus Christ.
Just for you, a guy I can relate to and appreciate, a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Click on the link below if the video don't work.
