Well, we had a wonderful weekend...Thursday was Thanksgiving dinner at our house with all the family...Friday was decorating for Christmas...Saturday was a visit with extended family in Portland, Oregon, where Charlie met two of the three sets of great, great uncles and aunts on my mom's side of the family...Sunday was church with family, including my mom!
Here's an album of our visit with my uncles and aunts and mom in Oregon.
Giving thanks is something that should just naturally fall from our lips to our Heavenly Father, every day. If our minds are set on the things above and we know from what state we have been saved out of, how can we not help but be thankful? I've taken the letters for THANKSGIVING and made an acrostic (well, sort of) out of them with some of our blessings listed in Ephesians. We can never be over thankful because His blessings are limitless!
predestiNed to adoption
Sealed with the Holy Spirit
aliVe with Christ
praise the Glory of His grace for eternity
None of these blessings would be ours without the sacrificial love of Jesus. Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast as an ocean...in its fullness, over us. May it cause great waves of Thanksgiving in our lives.
