Thanksgiving Greetings

Praying you all enjoy a warm and blessed day, remembering to be thankful for all the blessings–and trials–of the year behind us. I love Thanksgiving. It is a day that realyl does get me thinking about all that the Lord has blessed me with. I love writing my Bible study blog, learning so much and becoming more and more excited about the Bible every single day. I love my writing blog, just having fun and meeting lots of friendly people out there in cyberspace. I love my family, although too many of them are miles and an ocean away. I love the tradition of Thanksgiving, for all it reminds us of in the founding of our country as the early settlers struggled through their first year. I love friends, my church family, all who have become a part of my life. Right now, I’m especially thankful for the many helpful hands that are working to give us a new kitchen. It’s going to be fine for cooking the turkey, the potatoes and gravy. Lots of the mess is cleaned up from the living room, and I’m pretty sure we’ll have help from the family tomorrow to help us with some things. I love my job. Sometimes it’s hard, and it stretches me. But God always seems to show me the way, using His Word, to help me help those who come looking for ways to solve their problems. Mostly, I love my Savior. I love the God Who allowed His only Son to bear the burden of my sin, and to rise in triumph over death so that we, too, could have eternal life in heaven. That’s lots of thanks to give.

    1. On the last Thursday in November, America has a national holiday called Thanksgiving Day. It is in memory of the Pilgrims and other early settlers who celebrated a harvest holiday in 1621 with the Native Americans who had helped them survive their first difficult year. Canada also celebrates a Thanksgiving day, but not on the same day as ours. Not sure if any other country has a similar day.
