I will be spending Thanksgiving with my family. My daughter Kelly is doing most of the cooking. We’ll be at her home for supper with Joe, and the kids Andrew, Aidan and Alannah and the 7 cats. Well she says they have seven, I have only seen 3. They stay pretty well hidden when company is around. Sam and Stephen will be there as well. Actually I drove to their place and will ride with them to Kelly’s. That way I can stay longer and I won’t have to drive at night. Joe, my son in law’s dad will be there too.
Today we spend with family and close friends. It’s all about the turkey dinner and pumpkin pie. The chilled eggnog and football. But it is also a day to give thanks to the Lord for all of the blessings he has bestowed upon us. Family, health, friendship, food, clothing, shelter, safety, love, education…the list goes on and on. It’s necessary for us to know that without God we would have none of it. In 2016 it is very hard to imagine not having these things. But there are millions of people living today that don’t have what we take for granted. Many in our own country are lacking the very basics of human need. So, enjoy the turkey, eggnog, football and family…but say a sincere thank you to the Lord for his blessings and whisper a prayer for those without.
