As you read this, Patty and I are on our way to Thanksgiving dinner with my brother and sister, and trying to stay alive on the Parkway. I appreciate your prayers to help us get there and back without any distressing incidents.

“The more we recognize what God does for us,” he said, “the more we see who God is.”
The Bible tells us of many ways and occasions of giving thanks to God. Importantly, thanksgiving to God ought to be a matter of personal gratitude. Personal. We are persons because God is a person, and He made us in His image.
We can start with thanking Him for that!

I’ll pray for you and please pray for us. We are driving to Delaware to visit my family. Thanks!
I have prayed for your safety! Have a good time on this Thanksgiving day!
This article reminds me of the great book by Brother Andrew “The Practice of the Presence of God.” The more mindful we are of God’s consciousness living in us, the more thankful we become in every way.
