Father God I wonder- A Thanksgiving Reflection.

I wonder how long it would actually take me if I  wrote everything I should be grateful for?








For health, safety, knowledge, freedom, family, friends, prosperity, and well-being.


I could spend days listing the subcategories in each of the fundamental blessings I already mentioned. And many more days listing items in each of the subcategories. But this year, I would like to focus on one specific blessing.


But there is a blessing that I always take for granted.

As I listened to my favorite hymn at church yesterday, it dawned on me that I take

being God’s own child for granted!


Here is an excerpt of the hymn that inspired this Thanksgiving reflection:


Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist

Without the knowledge of Your parenthood and Your loving care

But now I am Your child, I am adopted in Your family

And I can never be alone

Cause Father God, You’re there beside me

I will sing Your praises



How awesome is this blessing, this grace? I was simply born into this reality:

  • I did not search for it (as millions have throughout the ages).
  • Fleeing from persecution to find salvation was not my lot.
  • I did not suffer unbearable tortures for my faith, as the martyrs did.
  • Practicing my faith in secrecy as millions of Christians still is not my reality.

I was simply handed this inheritance on a golden platter and a wooden Cross.


Truly, I wonder how I could have ever deserved this blessing.


May we all sing His praises forevermore.

After graduating with a Major in Journalism, Mireille’s career path took an unexpected turn away from her beloved pen and paper. It took an equally unexpected turn of events for Mireille to start writing again.After spending many hours (too many!) watching super hero cartoons with her son, she realized that most Christian children are unaware of their superpowers!She set about creating the SuperHolies: the Fruits of the Holy Spirit re-imagined as superpowers to grab the children’s attention and teach them about their faith and its glory.
