Thanksgiving Day Praise



What comes to your mind when you think of Thanksgiving. Is it the gathering of your family and friends at the table to enjoy the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the trimmings. And don't forget the pumpkin, cherry and apple pies. Or, maybe it's the warmth and love you feel when you are able to set back and watch your grand kids play and run through the house. All of these things come to mind when I think of Thanksgiving Day.

But then I begin to think about all of the families that will not be able to have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner with loved ones. The families that have no income because of job loss or illnesses. The families that are separated because of the wars that are going on around the world. I think of the homeless and the desperate people that feel that no one loves them anymore.

I know that I can not solve all of the world problems and that sometimes I worry to much about things I have no control over. But one thing I do know for certain is that our God is in complete control and that He loves you. So on this Thanksgiving Day, let us all give thanks to the Lord for what He has done for us. Thank you Lord for my wife and children and all my loving sisters and brothers. Thank you Lord for my church family and the christian fellowship they provide. Thank you Lord for all the blessings you have given me. And finally Lord, Thank you for my Salvation that I can never earn or even deserve.
