I am thankful for today, for life
and the joy that God has given me!
Whether you have big plans with friends and family or you are spending this day more quietly I hope you find blessings and joy. We do Thanksgiving dinner here about 7:00 pm so this morning finds my daughter baking cookies and we are watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and enjoying this beautiful fall morning. I am thankful that my immediate family (plus my daughter's beau) will be gathered around my table this evening and will also help start the Christmas decorating. We actually already have 1 tree up (in my office) and I don't feel one bit guilty, as truly here we celebrate one massive holiday called Merry Christgiving!
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
