With Thanksgiving approaching many people reflect on their blessings. Many think of everything they are thankful for. I, myself, have thought about my blessings this past week. I have so much to be thankful for. I could create a list of many things but there are three blessings that stick out more than any others.
1. My thanks to my King.
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
2. Home for Thanksgiving.
This year my family will be able to sit with our family at Thanksgiving dinner. The last time we had Thanksgiving dinner with our family was in 2006. As a part of the military we sacrifice many things including missing Thanksgiving dinner. This year I am so blessed to be home.
3. Our fellow military members.
Many of our military are still overseas fighting and many military have made the Ultimate Sacrifice. I have many friends this year who will not be able to spend their holidays with their spouses. Many tears will fall from those who miss their loved ones and pray for their safety. So, this Thanksgiving please remember those who fight for your Thanksgiving dinner.
What are you thankful for?
