It looks more like Christmas outside my window this morning than Thanksgiving, but that’s okay because we are all under the same roof and I put the Christmas tree up last week! We’ll just make up a new thing: it’s Christhankmasgiving!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I think it’s pretty cool how reflection leads us to thanksgiving. Looking back over the past year, I can’t help but be grateful. My family, our small group, and the friends we have are such incredible blessings! All of these “extra’s ” in my life point to the goodness of our God.
Something to think about as we gather with our family and friends this weekend; His grace was enough, sending His son paid the price. It’s the “extra’s” that demonstrate His goodness! In the good, in the bad, and even in the really, really ugly His grace and goodness will always find a way to us. We may need to spend some time looking for it, but it’s there.
This Thanksgiving let’s choose happy because of the “extra’s”. We certainly didn’t earn them, and He gives them anyway. His love is steadfast and unfailing no matter how you are spending this very white Christhanksmasgiving!
