…..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.
