This year we were blessed to have our family come to Kansas the weekend before Thanksgiving. We had dinner at our house sourrounding some other important events. There were 12 of us here, even though many others were in our thoughts and prayers. (Sorry no pictures, too busy being hostess!)
Today we celebrated as a family of 4. We had a second round of the usual fixin’s on a much smaller scale. During our prayer we each said what we were thankful for….the thoughts included family, both immediate and those not so close; having a job and the things we need; and for living in a country where we are free and can celebrate Thanksgiving.
“So let’s not get tired of doing good. At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galations 6:9
This verse has been on my computer since the beginning of fall…everyday when I read it, it reminds me to try to be positive and intentional about things. In the end there will be many blessings, given by God for all of us and for that I am truly thankful.
