Still Thankful

Dear Readers,My plans for the Thanksgiving series "Attitude of Gratitude" were interrupted by a very persistent cold, which has held on for almost four weeks. It developed into a sinus infection that dropped to my chest, threatening to stay on as pneumonia. I've been bedridden since Sunday. And even though this has thwarted my blogging plans, I want you to know I'm still thankful.

In parts three and four I was going to tell you how thankful I am for nature and for God himself. In all the things I've mentioned: laughter, people, nature, and God - none are limited by circumstances. It doesn't matter whether we are financially secure, happily married, appreciated, or even healthy. These things can be enjoyed by all, with gratitude to our Father who gives them.

That's all I want to say...for now. Barring any further illness, I hope to be back after Thanksgiving with a look at some of the characters in the Christmas story, and how we re-live their roles in the twenty-first century. I hope you will join me.

And now I will get back to being good, which I promised my husband I would, so I can get well. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving full of laughter, safe people, the beauty of nature, and most of all, God.

  1. I'm sorry to hear that you've been sick. I know how physical ailments can drag us down but your thankful spirit shines through your circumstances and glorifies God. Truly our thankfulness ought not be measured by good health, prosperity or peace in our relationships. All these things come and go like sunny days. Thank you for reminding us to give God our deepest thanks no matter what. Hope you're feeling better.
