Happy Thanksgiving friends, how are you today? If you’re anything like me, the past few days have been very hectic.  I am not even hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year and still it has been busy.  We are just about a week away from the end of November, can you believe it? I blinked, friends, I must admit that I have very little recollections of November. I found myself trying to retrace my footsteps and I am at a loss.  Apart from my closet, November has been literally a blur. I hate that! I really do not like to lose track of time because I feel as if I’ve wasted it.  We have one week left and I find myself trying to reign back, to plant my feet back on solid ground.  I Thess 5 17Notice solid ground is written in small letters, because I have not been negligent with my relationship with my Lord.  I can’t afford to be negligent, I would lose myself in the busyness, and if I did, that would not be a pretty picture for anyone, family included.  My Lord is my Lifeline during those busy days, He keeps my sanity intact.  Thank You, Father. I Thess 5 18That was a long introduction, wasn’t it? Anyway, how are you doing? Really, today, how are you doing? There is familiar poem by an unknown author (the entire poem is called, TIME TO PRAY, but I included only the last paragraph)…time to prayI have found that the busier I become, the more I need the Lord.  I encourage you to do the same.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are five (there’s more, but the list would be too long) things for which I am very, very, very, (well, you get my drift) grateful…

  1. The unconditional, unwavering, unfailing love of God
  2. My family (every single one of them)
  3. My church family (every single one of them [ but especially the ladies])
  4. You (every single person that has followed, liked, commented or just read this blog)
  5. Health and for stuff  (that includes everything else)

What are some things for which you are thankful?closing1brenda
