Of all days in the year, let us count our blessings today. Let us give grace to family and friends because we have received it in abundance. Let us enjoy the great food and thank the cooks. Let us remember how blessed we are in this country to gather at the table.
Let us remember how precious the people are who live with us, live near us, work with us, and open their hearts to us. They are the real treasures of life.
Let us give thanks for the Word of God that does not fail. It is true when all else is false. It has stood the test of time and will continue through eternity. It has been given to us as a love letter so that we may know the One who wrote it.
Let us look to the Giver of all good gifts, the unchanging Father. He sends sunshine and rain to the just and the unjust. He loves regardless. He offers the free gift of salvation and a relationship with Himself. He does not treat us as we deserve but is full of mercy and compassion.
Let us be thankful for the breath we breath, the strength to stand, the talents we use daily, the new day and the night to rest.
Of all days of the year, let us count our blessings.
Blessed Thanksgiving, friends.
