I’m sitting here in the very early light of Thanksgiving Morning. The turkey is still thawing in the sink. Some kids are up, playing quietly to not wake anyone else. My oldest walks in and whispers “Happy Thanksgiving” to me and quietly fist-bumps me. My head not quiet cleared from my bad cold, but I am at peace. Looking around, all the stuff I still have to do is not so glaring and painful to my heart. In fact, everything feels softened, like the light around the edges of the trees outside. My world is touched by the gratitude I feel for the Love my family gives to me, and the Love I feel pouring quietly from my Father in Heaven.
It’s a good day. So I will leave you with a couple of scriptures that touched my heart, and I think I will start some french toast for the kids. It’s a good morning for a hot, sweet breakfast.
Jerimiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord…
19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
2 Corinthians 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
