always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Everyone!
What a neat way to celebrate, we have "Thankful Thursday" and THANKSGIVING both in ONE! It's always hard for me to write about what I'm thankful for because I'm SO THANKFUL for so many things. God has blessed me with a loving family, great friends, freedom to live and worship in the MOST AMAZING country on the PLANET... then of course the MOST important thing of all is our SAVIOUR! I'm thankful for my salvation, and that of my husband and children. All THREE of our boys have (had) accepted JESUS as LORD of their life. THAT'S been my NUMBER 1 PRAYER since we were blessed with our first son, Brent.
Last night we shared what we were thankful for at our Bible study. I couldn't say this then without "breaking down" and probably can't now. KNOWING that our children are ALL "right with GOD," the thing I'm MOST THANKFUL for is the PROMISE of an eternity! I'm SO VERY GRATEFUL that JESUS paid the way for us to not only be with HIM in HEAVEN (and THAT is ENOUGH) but the Bible also says that we'll be reunited with our loved ones. The secular world would lead us to believe that when our loved ones die that is the end. They teach that we will NEVER see them again. We KNOW that this is NOT true! Because of CHRIST, what we know as DEATH is REALLY the BEGINNING of LIFE! My mind can hardly grasp what our sweet Brent has seen, and felt and heard. I just CANNOT wait to see his sweet face again!
Now, I also want to say that I'm thankful for YOU! GOD has used so many ways (including the internet) to bless me with some AMAZING friendships. My heart OVERFLOWS with JOY & LOVE when I think of all of the Titus 2 ladies HE'S brought into my life. (Philippians 1:3 I thank my God every time I remember you) Okay, I could go ON and ON and ON... but I won't. Hehe... I know that today will be a very busy day for each of you. Remember to COUNT your blessings!
I pray that you all have an AMAZING day of THANKSGIVING!
