What do the USA, Canada, Liberia, the Netherlands, Norfolk Islands, and Grenada have in common? Why, Thanksgiving, of course! And while each of these counties celebrates on its own unique day, many more countries and communities celebrate a time of thankfulness around the harvest season. It seems as though a grateful heart is pretty universal!
In my busy life of school, work, church, and home responsibilities, it’s easy to take for granted all the abundant blessings I enjoy each day: contact lenses so I can see clearly, a space heater to take the winter chill out of my Michigan apartment, the harmonious tones of an in-tune orchestra, the cozy feeling of a furry friend asleep on my lap, the delicious taste of pumpkin cookies still warm from the oven, the wonderful technology of Skype which allows me to talk to family and friends all over the world, and most importantly, the beautiful promises of Scripture that remind me of a God who loves me unconditionally and delights in filling my life with good things.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Psalm 34:8
