😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace and presence be with you.  Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone.  Reflecting on the past 12 months, I was trying to pinpoint one event, moment, relationship, thing from this past year that I’m more thankful for than anything else.  But there is not one that truly stands above all.  There have been so many moments, ranging from the start of our home construction, being physically able to put some sweat equity into that construction, prayers from family and friends, prayers for family and friends, silently sitting with a loved one, being challenged to go beyond what I think I’m capable of, seeing friends I hadn’t seen in over 20 years, seeing and experiencing the humility of a friend admitting they need help, at 55 still learning from my parents, experiencing conflict turn into resolution, helping a young girl find her parents, a solid job, consistent income, the ability to give, road trips, another year of visiting with you every Wednesday, and the list goes on and on.

But in every single item I mentioned and in every single moment of my day and night, the Lord is ALWAYS with me.  Because of His consistent, ever presence, we quite often forget to recognize His presence and tend to push Him in the background.  In saying that I am most thankful for the sacrifice He made for me, my relationship with Him, and His constant presence, in reality is saying that I am thankful for life itself, because without Him, there is no life. 

Take a moment today to consider the blessings you are thankful for and please share maybe one or two in the comments.  I would like the opportunity to share in your thankfulness.

May the Lord continue to pour His grace, love, and blessings upon you today and every moment of your life.  Amen.

Bless others and be blessed.
