1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 New International Version (NIV)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Be thankful still. When we lost our home to foreclosure, I tried to reassure my then teenaged son with more conviction then I had saying, "Don't worry! God will not leave us homeless."
He answered me then with a certain conviction, "We may be living under a bridge somewhere, but we will be together."
Sometimes I am astounded by him, thankfully convinced that God is raising him in spite of his parents. Today as we enjoyed Thanksgiving in this house of the level path, I remain deeply thankful. We are still together.
And, yes, I know he doesn't want to be blogged about, but sometimes my gratitude just spills out. I have a good son.
