...a week before Thanksgiving...and in spite of the current - and constant - political turmoil swirling around us, we have much for which to be thankful.
The Apostle Paul said "having food and raiment, let us be therewith content." (I Timothy 6:8).
Note he didn't even include shelter in his abbreviated list!
Be honest...could you be content if the sum total of your earthly possessions consisted of the clothes you wore and your daily bread?
No home, no car, no cell phone, no big screen TV, no <insert favorite vice here> ?
Well not to worry...by God's grace most of us have far more than just food and clothing.
And while I certainly do not take those for granted, above all I'm thankful for loved ones...the people who bring joy and kindness and happiness into my daily life.
Karen and I plan to gather with a few of them this coming Thursday to break bread and share some laughter and love for a few hours.
I hope you do, too.
But speaking of political turmoil, the election drama continues...
...and I have to admit I'm truly going to miss our visits to Jack Bartlett's ranch up in Hudson, Canada.
...and most of the cast is back, with the notable exceptions of Fie (Rosalinde Mynster) and Morten (Morten Enevoldsen).
So...our nightly routine of sitting on our backsides while staring at the TV screen for a couple of hours remains intact...for now...
