It seems that every year this is the time we especially consider what we’re thankful for. Well, first of all, I am thankful for my creator, God who loves me and protects me. Jesus, who went to the cross for me so that I could have my sins forgiven. The Holy Spirit who is in me and is my advisor. The Holy Trinity must come first.
Family is precious to me and I am thankful for every individual in my family. Most importantly my husband and children whom I pray for protection and for their salvation as well. I am so blessed by the husband that God gave me. Only the Father would know the perfect man for me. A man who loves me more than life itself and always loves to surprise me by building something or completing a task around the house. He makes me laugh and comforts me when I’m sad.
We have two daughters who are so sensitive to the needs of others. They are both creative and compassionate. I have always prayed for them to be blessed with a man that loves God and will treat them as Jesus treats His bride, the church. Now that they are both married to men who seem so right for them, I can rest in the fact that they are loved and cared for.
My church family is a big part of my life and I love each and every person. My heart is for helping this congregation to connect with the Holy Spirt. I treasure the time that I spend preparing for Sunday, practicing the music we’ll be doing and spending time with God.
I have felt God working in my life lately. It’s amazing to me the people that have come into my life just when I needed their influence. God’s plan for my life is not a path that I ever imagined, but I willingly have given control to him. It’s his will not mine.
I wish you a Thanksgiving with lots of turkey and pumpkin pie with all the trimmings. Time to relax with family, watching football games and of course taking a nap. Who could eat all that food and not take a nap!
I’ll be back again tomorrow with another lesson in James 2. Until then,
