Forever Grateful If one were to spend 24 hours a day, every day of the year, thanking God, it would not be enough. Thanksgiving provides an official, nationwide day to thank God for His bounty, grace, mercy, love and care. One can easily find a thousand reasons to be grateful. Today, I would like to reflect on a sentence I heard during a thanksgiving exercise. As everyone took a turn to express their gratitude, the following words hit a cord: "Thank you, God, for not treating us like puppets." It was said by a second-grader, in my Sunday School class....
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.
One that I always take for granted. One that shook my heart as I listened to my favorite hymn at church yesterday.
