Have a Blessed Thanksgiving

Turkey. Dressing. Cranberry Sauce. Pumpkin Pie. Family. Friends. Football. What more could you ask for on the day we celebrate called Thanksgiving. It is a day I look forward to all year long. And as much fun as I have with all of the food and people and sports on this weekend, it really is a time to stop and look up and give Thanks to God for his many blessings that He has given to us, and that He is to us.

I Chr. 16:34..."Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever". I am so glad that Our God is good. His motives for everything He does are only in our best interest.
I Corin. 15:57..."But Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ".
And the greatest thing we have to be thankful for of course is our Salvation! Praise Him for the free gift of Salvation!
No matter what trial or suffering we may be going through at this time, and I know some people are going through the fire now, we still have much to be thankful for.
Today as you look around the table and in your heart feel thankful that you are with the ones you love...don't forget to also look up and thank Him for making it all possible.
God bless you and Yours on this special day :)

this was the first time in 4 years that we didn't drive down to pensacola the day before Thanksgiving. we missed our freinds there but didn't miss the long trip after a full day of school. hope that you had a happy Thanksgiving. it looks like ya'll did by watching your video on YouTube.
