Pondering on Thanksgivings Past, Let me encourage you in the middle of your Thanksgiving celebration to take a minute to step back and consider the times past, think on the things that blessed your heart many years ago….Then take a minute to look around you, look into each loved ones face, at their smiles and their mannerisms, look at all the wonderful foods that our hands has prepared, and the love that went into it. Just savor the moment, the blessings of this day, compared to days past. With our family we have added so many new faces, we have in laws and new grand baby and great grand babies, just a abundance of love through this one union of man and wife, this is our 50th Thanksgiving together as a married couple, that in itself is such a glorious blessing, to still have my wonderful bridegroom of my youth. Take in note for times to come. Then thank the Lord for His goodness, grace and mercy, for family and friends, for the freedom to worship him freely still, for God’s great provisions, for HIS SALVATION through His son JESUS, for heaven, to see, hear, taste, smell, touch….and for His amazing love and bountiful blessings. Oh how God has blessed us and our family, yes I will take the time to thank him. Deuteronomy 28:2 "And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God."
God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving day, and may we all be thankful throughout the year, day by day thanking him and making sure we honor him.
