Giving thanks always and for everything... Ephesians 5:20
Thanksgiving Day 2014. Parades. Family. Too much good food. Giving thanks for our many blessings. Sounds pretty typical, right? It's been our norm for as long as I can remember. This year, however, was different. For our family, thankfulness took on a whole new meaning. Hit a whole new level. I knew it was going to hit me at some point--I just didn't realize it would hit when I was praying before our meal.
I have always been thankful for the blessings God has given me, but this year has taught me what it means to be truly, wholly thankful. Not just one day, but every single day. Thankful for God's love, mercy, and amazing grace--that I have seen in abundance over the last ten months. Thankful He gave me an incredible family growing in strength and faith all the time. Thankful for the healing happening in my daughter--and the hope for her spectacular future.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts...and with my song I give thanks to Him. Psalm 28:7
