Today is Thanksgiving! (Is there anybody around that does not know this?)
So, after that bold revelation where can I go from here?
I have been reflecting this month. I took a challenge the first of November to post everyday on Facebook a statement that started, "Today I am thankful for....". It was my job to fill in the blank. It has been wonderful.
Lots of my friends also did this. It has turned November into a time of reflection and gratitude. What a blessing!
As I have looked back over my life and this past year I'm extremely thankful for my blessings. I have had window opened and blessings poured in.
Don't get me wrong - this has been an extremely difficult year. We have faced many challenges. We have lost many things. We have battle scars.
But, praise the Lord!!! He has brought us through. He has carried us. He has shown Himself strong. He has been our Rock and our Strong Tower. He has blessed us. He has been our All in All!
There are so many ways that God has blessed us. He has moved mightily... so many areas where "if it had not been for the Lord on my side ..." so many things that could have turned out differently. There are so many many places we have seen the Lord's Hand make a difference and change circumstances, people, hearts, outcomes.
I am extremely thankful this Thanksgiving. I am overwhelmed with gratitude, joy and life.
Thank you for being my friend, family, link... however you are connected... I appreciate you.
My prayer is that you will be blessed beyond measure as you take this day to stop and reflect and say "Thank You" to those who have touched your life. Make a very special acknowledgment to our Father, who has been the Author of every good and perfect thing in your life!
Blessings as you celebrate a Happy ThanksLIVING!
