Today is Thanksgiving, and we all have so incredibly much to be thankful for. Throughout the day, this being an open thread, whoever is around today, we can post thanks for those who have blessed us in so many ways.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
I have to be honest that this time of year going into Thanksgiving and Christmas has been hard and gotten harder as last year American boy and I lost Michael’s mom and this year recently the loss of my Dad has added to Michael gone 5 years now, and also my Sister’s husband Julio. But as these times are hard not just for missing those not here anymore, but with so much always going on and new responsibilities always added, I am so grateful for all the people the Lord has put in my life. The hurts and heartaches, the pain and trials while going through but yet I am so grateful and thankful for the lessons and truths which have shown so much of God’s grace and blessings. I really couldn’t have life any other way even if I could have changed things. The people He’s brought into my life during my life’s hardest trials and struggles have been incredible, blessings each and every one of them and you- that I am always amazed at His timing and the paths He leads us on.
Daisy and I hope everyone has a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving, and from all of us at the Heartbeat, thank you for sharing yourselves with us here.
We pray our Troops have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving wherever they are. We are so thankful for all of you.
Have a beautiful day!
