Thoughts on Thanksgiving

It is cloudy today and maybe we will get some rain. The farmers do not want any rain right now while they are trying to get the crop into the bins. For some it is a bountiful harvest, others are moaning and groaning about the water — the small quantity, and some lesser quality of the grain. My husband always says that after 63 years of farming he has never gone hungry yet, even when there were years of crop failures.

There are still so many things that we can be thankful for. We have a roof over our head, many of us have loving families and we know that the Lord is in control if we let Him into our life.

When we read the Psalms we can see how thankful David is time and again, because he knows who is in control of his life. Psalm 95:2,3 tell us, “Let us come before Him with thanksgiving… for the Lord is a great God…”

Let us be thankful even for the small blessings we received this past year.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!
