Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As the sun rises today I find myself standing in a cemetery by a familiar grave marker, but there is no sadness in my heart because the lady whose name is on the stone is not there. Oh there is a casket and a body there I guess, but she isn`t. I am reminded of another tomb years ago that was found to be empty of the body of a man who was sacrificed close to that tomb. Today I give thanks to a God who is my Father and who loves me so much he sacrificed his only Son that I might have a loving relationship with him. As I look around, I see many, many things, but all will pass away except that love and that relationship. As the sun slowly rises and there is more light, I know that I am a blessed man and I give thanks to my God who loves me more than I can comprehend. I bask in his love just as I bask in the warming sunlight as it gently replaces the cold of pre-dawn.
May God bless all of you as he has blessed me. I know he will because he said he would.
