-My dear wife of almost 45 years, and how she has been faithful and true.
-My four children, three of which survive. All have declared faith in Christ.
-My eleven grandchildren, soon to be twelve. They are all precious to me.
-Our church where Christ is preached, and the brothers and sisters there.
-The renewed ministry God has given me in writing and pulpit.
-Many brothers and sisters in various places who pray for me.
-A land that still has much freedom, though it is being undermined.
-I am thankful for generally good health for my wife and myself.
-The graciousness and mercy of God every day that I live.
These are just a few of the many things for which I thank God. As you enjoy this Thanksgiving, hopefully with your family, take time to reflect on the mercies of God in your own life, as well as a prayer for our nation and it’s future, and the cause of God and truth through Jesus Christ our Lord..
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (First Thessalonians 5:18).
