I’m thankful that son and I had a safe trip. We put on a lot of miles without incident, if you don’t count the bug goo that I can’t get off the hood of my new car, that is. We found a way around all the closed roads in southern Saskatchewan that didn’t add a whole lot of miles to the trip. I’m thankful that God’s hand worked all that out for us.
We saw my niece married and had a good time with all the wedding activities. I got to see my dad and sister and all my sister’s kids. I’m thankful for my extended family and time spent with them.
I’m thankful for the produce from the garden. Everything is so much bigger than when we left. We’ve had lettuce and other greens, cauliflower, and broccoli, and there are tomatoes that will be ready to pick in a couple of days. I’m thankful for the rain and the sun and the soil that grows my garden vegetables.
I’m thankful that our God is a benevolent God; I’m thankful that he gives good gifts. I’m thankful that he is rescueing God; I’m thankful that he saves and protects. I’m thankful that he is a trustworthy God; I’m thankful that he keeps his promises.
Throughout this year I’m planning to post a few thoughts of thanksgiving each Thursday along with Kim at the Upward Call and others.
