Celebrating the opportunity to be Thankful

Here in the United States we are celebrating our Holiday of Thanksgiving.  It is a day of family, Breaking Bread and reflecting on the richness of our lives.  Prosperity and Peace are the by products of living a Godly life and having  a relationship with our creator, The Lord Jesus Christ.  People can be happy and wealthy without Him, but these two sets of elements are not the same thing.  If you are interested in finding out more, Read the book of John in the bible  and you will discover the difference and the Loving Savior,( I am like a broken record saying that aren't I)!
 
I am thankful for many things.  I have the best husband and companion on the planet and we have our health, I have three wonderful children.  My mom is 86 and doing great, I have two sisters Cheryl and Robin, that I love and that love me. I have In-laws that if I could have hand picked , it would be them. I am thankful For Jane, Lori and Beth and Betty, friends for decades. We have a cozy little house and bread on our table.  More than anything I have Jesus and He has  me;                                               The Eternal One who calls me by name. 
I hope you take a moment today to reflect on all the Good things in your life and express thanks and appreciation to those that have blessed you and to the Blessor. Have a wonderful day!

 
   Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
