This is the first Thanksgiving since the start of this blog. Just a note to myself and anyone else who might have an interest.
I am a person who endeavors to be thankful every day. First of all thankful to our Creator who has given us all things for blessing us. The air we breathe, the ground upon which we walk, the beating of our hearts; He gives us every beat. At His own will and discretion He could take us to our eternal destiny. Be thankful today of all days.
I am thankful for my family and friends as well. The Creator has given them to me to love and enjoy and to learn from them as well; and I pray I can be as good a family member and friend they have been to me. My wife is the gem, the jewel of my life. She was a gift from the Creator for sure.
Just over a year ago in September, on the 21st of September, as a matter of fact my wife had a rare heart surgery for an anuerism of the aorta of her heart. The surgery was a success; and she went for a annual exam yesterday with a CT scan and all looked good. For that I am thankful.
I am thankful for the five children the LORD has given me as well. They are all different in many ways, with very different personalities, and gifts. For that I am thankful too. I am thankful for my 12 grandchildren, and are they all so grand. I am thankful too that we have two already with Jesus.
I am thankful for the family I grew up in; my mother and father, brother, sisters; aunts and uncles, cousins; and all my fore fathers. Without them all I would not be who I am today.
I am thankful for so many things, and one last thing I want to let the world know is that I am thankful for our home and the land on which we live. It is God’s gift to us. I pray I will be a good steward of all the LORD has given me.
Thank YOU LORD.
Thankful on the banks of Flat Creek.
