Giving Thanks

As I sat down to type out my "Things I'm Thankful For" list, I was reminded that there is no blessing too small for which to offer thanks. Because, really, all the small things aren't so small after all. And they all add up to the fact at every good and perfect gift is from the Lord (James 1:17).

So, for red maple leaves blowing around me, for the feel of Eli's hand in mine, for our cozy little house, for my beloved husband, for a crock pot of soup, for health, for time, for all the blessings abundant in this life of ours, I am thankful.

And most of all I am thankful for Jesus Christ, my gracious and merciful Savior, who gives the life that is truly life (1 Timothy 6:19).

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
