I Will Sing to the Lord….

…..For He has been good to me.—Psalm 13:6.

I have so much, so many good things in my life.  No, not money.  But I am so thankful that without great monetary wealth and riches, I am not hungry, nor cold, nor without clothing to wear.  My heart is full to bursting with love for and from family and friends, who would do anything for me, and I for them.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the piece of land upon which I live.  The same acres my grandfather purchased over a half-century ago, with hard-earned dollars, give me space and room to roam among the pecan trees, the hay meadow, alongside the creek.  I give thanks to our good Father for allowing me to just be here.

I am extremely thankful that God gave me a heart that loves dogs. So many people missed out on this, and I am sorry for them every day.  My dogs are my tangible, earthly, everyday reminder of a God who loves us no matter what.  My dogs are the very embodiment of love and joy in living, and I am a better person because I love them.

I am thankful beyond words that I live in America.  This country is a gift to all of us, despite problems, big and small.  Infinite opportunities abound, and I am thankful for those opportunities available to me and to everyone.

“I will sing to the Lord for He has been good to me”.  So very good.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.
