Today is Thanksgiving, a traditional day for giving thanks. Although I try to be thankful for my many blessings on a daily basis, today I am mindful of the things I have been blessed with over the last year. I am thankful to God for sustaining me through many family difficulties. Although they have painful, I believe He has used them for my spiritual growth.
I am thankful to God for giving me comfort after the loss of my father last December and for blessing my mother-in-law with another year of life, despite being diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago.
I am also thankful to God for keeping my husband, children and me healthy and for providing my husband with continued employment in this difficult economy. Most of all, I am thankful for His son, Jesus, who gives us continued hope for the future.
Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving!
