I’m thankful for the incarnation. The sovereign Lord—the one who created thrones and dominions and rulers and authorities, and who upholds them all by his powerful word—emptied himself by taking on the form of a servant, and was obedient even to death on the cross. And he did it to save his people. It’s the greatest gift ever.
I’m thankful that both grandbabies visited yesterday. I’m thankful that they like each other so much.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to sing Christmas carols at the nursing home tonight.
I’m thankful for my blooming African violets.
I’m thankful that it warmed up a little. Everything’s so much easier when it isn’t deathly cold outside.
I’m thankful for mandarin oranges, my favorite fruit of the season.
