On this National Day of Thanksgiving, there are so many reasons for me to fall to my knees in thanks to the Lord for all He has done for me, my family and my many friends. Today, though, a new and spectacular reason to give thanks rests in the hands of our grandson, Jake.
Jake is holding the initial sonogram of our next grandchild. Yes, Julie is pregnant. She and husband Tim are expecting the birth of their second child in early June. Miracles and wonders that “surpass all understanding” fill our world. The conception, development and birth of a child truly is a wonder above all others.
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalm 136: 1, 3 & 4 KJV
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. May the Lord’s mercies endure with you forever.
