It's Thanksgiving morning here in mid-Michigan and we are getting ready. The coffee's made. The turkey is ready to be put in the oven early this afternoon and I will take a last swipe of the vaccuum on the living room carpet.
As we march towards Christmas and the celebration of Jesus being born, I'm reminded of how much I have to be thankful for. My family. My wife. My kids, including their spouses. My grandchildren. My son and his wife are here from their home in Washington, D.C., we will have a couple over from dinner close to their age who are a long way from home and we will talk over Face Time with my daughter and family in Bosnia a little later.
But, my wife shared a verse on Facebook from Psalms that states the main reason for being thankful today and every other day:
My list of things to be thankful for could go on and on and fill this whole page, but what I am most thankful for is a God who never changes even when circumstances do not and who loves me so much that He sent HIs son to live and die for me so that I may live with Him forever.
