No matter what I face every year, as Thanksgiving and then Christmas draw close I become excited. I see with eyes made new all the blessings I actually have, and with a heart full of love for God I give thanks and rejoice. I pray this Thanksgiving finds you feeling the same way . . . . that you discover yourself surrounded by people you love and people who love you, that you know for yourself the awesome love of our Savior Jesus Christ, and that you give thanks from a heart brimming over with joy as mine is this week! We have so many reasons to be thankful in our home, and I'm certain it's the same at yours if you only choose to see!
Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men!
