A Month of Thanksgiving
During November I shared each day (well almost every day) about the things that I am thankful for at my other bog, An Eye for Redemption. Thought that I might share a few excerpts here from those thankful thoughts.
The dawn of each day seems to bring with it the hope of a second chance.
It speaks to me of the way that the Holy Spirit causes us to rise above our circumstances and be so much more than we think that we can be.
When we live from the heart we are able to say no to things that are not good for us.
I am so thankful for being here to experience the joys and sorrows of life.
When I am down and discouraged I find hope and encouragement in the God authored dreams he has given me.
In hindsight I can see God's providential hand in the closing of doors and in new opportunities.
People like these have shown me by their example what it is like to live for God.
When we forgive them we are released from all sorts of bitterness and anger.
I so give thanks to God for a country that was founded on a love for liberty and the proposition that all men are equal.
God stooped down to work with people, their limited understandings and the influences of their cultures.
The smallest seed of faith, planted in our heart, can change everything - in 1976 it rocked my world!
