I am thankful for so many things, and this special holiday causes me to pause and reflect on the treasured gifts that God has given me.
I am grateful to live in the United States, to be free to worship and to live and travel freely. I appreciate the sacrifice that veterans have made and that active service men and women make each day for our freedom.
My many friends - whether online or near or far - are another special blessing. Thank you for being supportive and kind, and for just being there.
The church family who welcomed the Langes into their fold over five years ago are yet another treasure. We are truly blessed to be a part of Shelbyville Christian Assembly.
Special family - sisters Wendy, Robin, and Julie, brothers in law Michael and Jaman, my parents Wayne and Linda, and my grandparents, in laws Carolyn and Ralph, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and beyond have been a rich part of my heritage. For each one of you, I am grateful.
My children, son Tim, his wife Jessica, and their son Evan, and son David and daughter Becky, I have no words to express how thankful I am for you. Partly because I will cry if I think too hard on it, and partly because my love and gratitude for what you've brought to my life knows no bounds. Thank you Lord!
I am thankful for my sweet husband of 29 years. (I was a child bride:) Jeff has been patient and kind, supportive and loving; he is my true soul mate and lifelong companion. Words fail me here as well, as the depth of God's love for me is shown by giving me this gift.
Finally, my deepest gratitude goes to our Heavenly Father, who created us, loves us, and supplies the grace and mercy we need for each day. Jesus paid a debt we could not pay; what a precious and awesome gift!
What gifts are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
Happy Thanksgiving! Blessings to you all:)
