Thankful for...

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect.  Though the stores are trying their best to crowd out the day for most of you I hope you have a wonderful relaxing day with family and friends.  I say relaxing full realizing that most of us will be cooking Turkey, pies and the like.  Honestly, I for the most part enjoy that part.  I do a lot ahead and it's not a big deal.  Honestly, Thanksgiving is one of the easiest meals to cook.  So as you're waiting for that plastic thingy to pop take some time to think about what you're thankful for.  Here's some of mine this year:

  • Liberty-it's something we have that can't be taken.  I am thankful for the measure of freedom we have but realizing more and more that liberty is the better thing to be thankful for.
  • My husband-last year at this time his health was not looking so good.  I am glad to have him for as long as the Lord allows.
  • Kids-Four healthy and mostly happy kids all following after the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Hope-This world has none in every circumstance but because of Jesus as Christians we have hope in every circumstance.

  • Home-I love our home and property, so thankful God allows us to steward it.  

  • My business (and subbing)-It allows me to bless my family with "extra" things like vacations.  It has also been an excellent training ground for my children.

  • Homeschooling-I would not have the children I have today without it.  I wouldn't be the person I am today without it.  Just this weekend Chris and I were at a seminar where we realized the quality of speakers we get in homeschool conventions.  It's priceless.

  • Our church-We have seen this church be "the church" more than any other place we have been.  They are still following Biblical standards and Pastor Collin preaches the truth.  Not everyone can say that anymore so we are thankful!

  • Mom and Dad-My Mom and Dad still pray for us everyday!  That is a blessing I'm not sure we'll ever fully comprehend here.
  So what are you thankful for?  Happy Thanksgiving!
