Thankfulness

“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.” John Calvin.

As we await the joys of America’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, horrible days await some people in other parts of the world. By God’s grace most of you reading this live in safety and comfort. That alone is worth our gratitude tomorrow.

My late mother, who died 15 years ago today, once drove with me near our home in her old age. It was a dark, dreary day and looking just off the street she commented on the beautiful flowers lining the roadway.

Today I miss her gratitude. She meant the world to me, a woman who prayed for her three children each day.
