Happy Thanksgiving

I have much to be grateful for. I have a faithful husband, healthy children, a home, plenty of food, clothes to wear, and a reason to wake up every morning.

Mostly, though, I am thankful for a Creator who made all things and yet chose to love me, an insignificant speck in the span of time and space.  Without Christ, I am nothing. The things that bring me joy (my family, my art, and my teaching) can only do so because God has given me the ability to participate in them. He is the Ultimate One, the One who gives life and breath. He is the One who triumphs over death and hell, saving those who follow Him completely.

As much as I treasure those things that bring me joy, I know they are nothing in the scope of eternity--which is yet another reason to offer thanksgiving to the Lord of All.

Beautiful sentiments.....I wish more people would speak out about Christ in their lives! I agree with you and offer thanks to Him who is above all.
