November of Thanksgiving 29

I’m thankful for the advent season that we’ve just started. We’re anticipating Christ’s first coming, putting ourselves back, in a way, to the time before the central event in the history of the world, to a time when it was clear that the world desperately needed a saviour, but there was not one….yet.

We can only go back there, of course, in our imaginations, because we live on the bright side of history.  Everything has changed for us because salvation is already here. But it’s good for us to think about the time before—the dark side, if you will—because it makes us more thankful, more glad, more joyous, that  God planned, before creation, for that Light to come, and at the right time, the Light came.

Others thanking God today:

What are you thankful for today?

I’ll be back later to add links to additional posts.

Do you want to participate, too? You’ll find instructions here for the ways both bloggers and nonbloggers can join in the thanksgiving.
