For some of you it’s past, and for others it’s just around the corner. It is definitely one of our family’s highlights of the year. There’s something special about the colors of the trees, the briskness of the air and the hub-bub of family gathering in our home that is just so special.
There is so much to be thankful for despite our circumstances, disappointments and even tragedies. It gives us the opportunity to take our eyes off of those situations and put them firmly on our God!
This season my extended family will gather without my grand-nephew Javan who went home at just 7 years old. Yet, thanksgiving will abound as we reflect on too many blessings to count. And, the ultimate blessing of eternal life in Christ!
May the spirit of Thanksgiving go with you ALL year long!
