Just wanted to share a little with everyone today on this glorious Thanksgiving Day. Thankful for soo many things and wanted to share just a few of them. In my daily devotional the verse for today was Hebrews 11:24. It tells how Moses made the choice to be identified with God’s people rather than the rich Egyptians that he grew up with. The author then went on to say that we cannot truly know ourselves and have freedom until we know our family history. I say BA HUM BUG to that!!
Like Moses, I find my identity in God’s Word. I am His child, He loves me unconditionally , I love and trust Him completely; what could be more freeing than that? Don’t get me wrong, family is important to me. The last few years that my dad was alive, I spent as much time with him as I could, and I am so thankful that I did. I have 3 sisters who all live in different states. I try to see them a couple of times a year. In between we stay in touch via facebook, emails and texting. I am so thankful for our times together and for the technology that helps us stay in touch.
I am thankful that I decided to start my Christmas decorating early this year and should be able to finish it up today. I love Christmas!! This lights, the decorations, the music, it all still stirs me inside! And there is also the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. His birth did not actually happen at this time of the year, but it is nice to celebrate it anyway. I am especially thankful for all that God has done for us, and that Christ chose to die on the cross for us all.
His death on the cross and then being resurrected from the grave has given us true freedom. I am eternally thankful for that!!
