What Are You Thankful For?
But this question is an easy one. God has blessed me with a lovely wife, and a son who amazes me every day with his intelligence, wit and candor. I am also surrounded by relatives and friends who speak into my life through their righteous words and deeds. These are my heroes. I just pray that each of them obtain their own measure of favor from the one true God.
Thanksgiving is a time when we give thanks for the good things that have happened to us. My hope is each of you will follow through with this act, always being cognizant of the fact that we all have been called to be blessings to others. While we shouldn't be seeking gratitude from the individuals we touch, we should be confident in the fact that God is smiling down on us for our willingness to be blessings to others. That is what happens when you store treasure in heaven.
Be blessed, family, and continue to be a blessing throughout and beyond the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
