On this day we give thanks for the many blessings we all have in our lives. I am thankful first to our Lord for loving us even as we are his enemy and the scourge of sin remains with us, but we have the blessed assurance that if we believe in him we will be washed white as snow when we stand before the father. I am thankful for our United States where the dreams of our forefathers still resound loudly throughout the streets of America and as we may never have a perfect union, we strive for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all. I am thankful for my wife who has dedicated her life to me, our children, and our new little (well not so little) German Shepherds. Her love for us is a daily reminder of the commitment she made when we stood before God and vowed to love each other until we live no more. I am thankful for my sons who I cherish daily and though they may not realize it, I am in profound honor to be called their father and I strive each day to live up to the responsibility which God has placed in my hands. I am thankful for my family, who have shown me love and demonstrated christian discipleship in the home. I am thankful for my friends, my clients, my employees, and my neighbors. Today I give thanks to all and pray that The Lord of mercy and strength will sustain us all and wrap his loving arms around us and protect us from the storms of life until we reach those beautiful shores of roads paved in gold and worship in thunderous acclaim at the feet of the master. May almighty God bless you and keep you and may his face always shine upon you.
