I have so many reasons to be thankful this year.  I could tell you how thankful I am for my wonderful husband, sweet friends, good health, my cozy home, and of course my own little family:
......but as I reflected on thanksgiving yesterday, it struck me that even more important than the reasons for my thankfulness was the source of it.  I am not grateful to chance or to destiny -- and definitely not to myself -- for all of the wonderful people and things in my life.  I am grateful to the One from whom all blessings flow.  The One who sustains and provides.  The One who loved me, a sinner; who sent His Son to die for me; who was lovingly working out His plans for our family even as I struggled to be thankful last year.  The One who comforts and lavishes grace so abundantly on His children.  He has given me more reasons to be thankful than I can count.  It is the prayer of my heart that I will be thankful for Him above all else.
Happy Thanksgiving!
