I am thankful that God has revealed himself in his word. We don’t have to go around guessing who and what he is because he tells us. We don’t have to go around guessing (or even constantly questioning) how and where he works. We can know God and we can know his works, because he has made himself known to us. That’s a good thing and I’m thankful.
I’m thankful that we have such a variety of good food available. Right now I’m eating ham and Swiss cheese slices on a toasted bagel for lunch, and it is yummy. Last night I had a mix of roasted vegies (and I love my vegies*) that wouldn’t even have been available to me during the winter months when I was a child. I’m thankful that God provides us with such an abundance. Yep, good food is another good gift.
I’m thankful for sunny days and beautiful blue skies. This has been a bit of a difficult winter and I’m thankful for the promise of spring days to come.
*Note to my spell-check: It is perfectly permissible to spell vegies with only one g. And preferred, if you ask me. After all, the g is soft.
Throughout this year I’m planning to post a few thoughts of thanksgiving each Thursday along with Kim at the Upward Call and others.
