Thankful

Holidays. People love them…people hate them. For my family, we fell in the “love ‘em” category. Thanksgiving always means getting together, sharing laughter and great food and playing all kinds of games. We bake and decorate and spend time watching football. Even the challenging Thanksgivings become a source of fun. Like the first time I fixed a turkey for Don and me. I made a huge bowl of stuffing, but the only place I saw to put it was this small indentation at the back of the turkey. I shoved and smashed that bowl of stuffing into that indentation, only to discover when I went to pick up the painfully stuffed bird that there was a huge cavity at the front! Holy cow! Turkeys have two holes!! I immediately called my mother, sharing my discovery. We still laugh about it.

For some, though, Thanksgiving and other holiday hold more stress than fun. Struggles and conflicts seem to steal any joy. For those folks, and for those who love the holidays, I wanted to share a couple of Thanksgiving songs. Today, as you prepare yourself for Thanksgiving, whatever it means to you, take just a minute to stop, rest, listen to the songs below, and think about what you have in your life that makes you thankful.

For me, it’s my faith, my wonderful family and friends, my challenging and rewarding work, my darlin’ four-legged “kids,” the beauty of nature all around me, and so much more. But most of all, I’m thankful for the One who not only gave me these things, but who gave His all that I might be restored.

Thank you, Lord.

Love the song in the first video, and the message in the second. Whether your Thanksgiving is perfect or…not so much, know that there is One who loves you without reservation. And that’s something we can all be thankful for.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

Everyone is thinking about being thankful this week so it is comforting knowing that I am not alone on this bandwagon. When President Obama said the words, “You didn’t build that,” back in 2012 and drew such ire from opponents, I was troubled. I understood what he was trying to …

Give Thanks to God

http://www.gratisography.com/

There is a verse in scripture which sets out in bold relief the great besetting problem of the human race. It is Romans 1:21: ‘for even though we knew God…we did not give thanks.’ Astonishing! How can we actually know God and not give thanks? Scarcely a day passes in which we are not deluged by at least a hundred instances of God’s goodness to us. Thanksgiving ought to be the most natural of human reflexes, as spontaneous as drawing breath.

Doubtless there are a plethora of reasons why we do not feel thankful. Perhaps business is stressful, or marriage is disappointing, or parenting is unfulfilling, or health is deteriorating, or school is unrewarding. Or maybe we simply take for granted God’s goodness to us.

How important it is, then, to rehearse frequently all that God does for us. Only then will an unending torrent of thanksgiving be unleashed from our hearts. Nowhere is God’s goodness more compellingly set out in His word. Immerse yourself in what follows, luxuriate in the story of God’s grace to you. . . and be thankful!

Who is like the Lord our God? Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who is enthroned above the vault of the earth . . . and who stretches out the heavens like a curtain. How majestic is His name . . . When we consider His heavens, the work of His fingers, the moon and the stars which He has ordained, what are we that He should take thought of us?

But My Critique Group Likes It!

Over the years, I have received this comment from frustrated authors when a work didn’t hit the mark with me. As someone who penned many books in the past myself, I understand and sympathize with these authors. However, this argument will almost  never get an author another read of the …
