Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Besides Christmas, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love everything about it – the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, the food and being together with family.

Today is the day Americans give thanks for the years bounty. But really, shouldn’t we be givings thanks everyday. Not to offend anyone here, but we have so much to be thankful for. My husband regularly tells me this, because he knows that’s just not how my mind works. I’m usually such a worrier that I don’t take the time out of my worried thoughts to just relax and be thankful for what we have.

Thanksgiving for our family isn’t just about things we have but also the promises that God has given us.

Our world may be going through some craziness right now, but, I believe ultimately God is  still in control and He is providing for us in ways we can’t even fathom. He holds the universe in His hands.

2 Corinthians 4:15-18New King James Version (NKJV)

15 For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

I believe that everything we have has been provided by God, and we should be thankful that His grace is abundant and everlasting.~Bam
