Happy Thanksgiving

God has been exceedingly merciful to us, and the memory of those mercies ought to move us to a deep, sustained gratitude. A thankful spirit begins when we recall the memory and give thanks once again for all He has done for us. “Our gratitude to God will almost certainly be in proportion to our sense of feeling unworthily blessed, because the same God who could have passed us by – didn’t” (R.T. Kendall, Just Say Thanks).

Our Thanksgiving began a bit differently this year. Amy ran the Atlanta Half Marathon this morning with my sister. They ran well and had a good time. Maybe this will be a new tradition. Scott was also up early to football practice and a mandatory Thanksgiving dinner with the team in preparation for the big game Saturday. He did make it back to celebrate with us also.

We enjoyed our celebration with family. We are truly blessed. "Oh Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good!" Ps. 118:1
