So Much To Be Thankful For

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and we have so much to be thankful for! I am so thankful for my family, my wife and my 2 boys. Their unending support and love are always there, no matter what victory or defeat I may face. I included the scripture above not only because of it’s relevance to our holiday of Thanksgiving, but because I recently heard my 1st grader recite Psalm 100 in its entirety during the Thanksgiving program at his school.

Raised Hand PrayerI’m not sure what could be more moving and humbling than a class of 6 year olds reciting the Word of God from memory, and reminding us all to be thankful and to praise the God of the Universe! Many of us have so much to learn from the young and innocent around us. Their lack of inhibition, honesty, and unconditional love is just a glimpse into the Holiness and Perfection of our Lord. There’s certainly a reason that “Jesus loves the little children”!

I’m thankful for all of the amazing strides made within the Pro-Life movement this past year, including the increase in participation of churches and people throughout Maryland in 40 Days for Life, churches of many denominations coming together in prayer and action, and 2 new Life-Affirming Resource Centers opening within feet of abortion facilities! These are but a few small milestones within the Grand Plan that God is orchestrating right in front of us!

And I am so thankful for YOU! Your faithfulness and commitment to stand up for the weakest among us and to speak up for those who can not speak for themselves is seen by God Himself, and He tells us in the book of Mark, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be cheap generic online viagra yours!” How’s that for a promise? Makes you want to pray right now, doesn’t it?!

Whatever your plans tomorrow, I encourage you to take time to Thank God for His blessings, His promises, and His love. And if you have the opportunity, I encourage you to have a child pray and give thanks to God…it will melt your heart. And if it can melt the heart of a sinner, imagine how it will touch the heart of the Creator of Life

Happy Thanksgiving…and Thank You!
