Giving Thanks

It hardly seems possible. November is almost gone, Thanksgiving is upon us, with Christmas right behind. Where has the time gone?

This is traditionally a time to count our blessings, to give thanks for what we have. I know--it's hard to think about blessings when our nation is struggling with economic changes that threaten to sink us, while carrying on a war with terrorists that seems to have no end. But nevertheless, we are a blessed people. And I count myself to be truly blessed.

I have a roof over my head, clothes to wear, food to eat--I am blessed. I have a family and friends, people who love me and care for me--I am blessed. And I have accepted God's free gift of love and redemption--I am truly blessed.

To my readers, thanks for continuing to drop by Random Jottings. I'm thankful for you, as well.
