The year of 2020 will be remembered not for what we lost, but for what we gained in knowing truly what we are thankful and grateful for! We have been through many trials and tests, with still more to come, but we have shown we can still be thankful in the midst of our circumstances and help others do the same.
What are you thankful for as we approach this Thanksgiving Day 2020? I look back on our history, when 400 years ago in 1620 the Pilgrims, who chose to come to this land, and faced many hardships, including the loss of lives. Yet , they still wanted to be thankful to the God of all creation, and reached out to others to celebrate the beauty and harvest of this new land.
Little did they know when they recorded the 200 words of the Mayflower Compact on their ship before they landed at Plymouth Rock, that it would be the foundation of our country as we know it today. A lot has happened since then, but we can still stand for the truth that we believe in and celebrate the blessings of our individual lives.
Today I celebrate and am thankful for the many blessings that I have received in this great land called The United States of America. I am thankful for the freedom of choice in serving God, a wonderful family, amazing health, those who fought and continue to fight for my freedoms, being in the workplace for over 50 years doing the work I love, with the most Remarkable team and clients, being supported by our Prayer Partners, and the many friends we have all over the world.
I don’t take lightly the freedom that has been fought for and won, nor the challenges of today. But I face the tomorrows to come with pursuing joy, peace, and contentment; knowing that our God is still in control and His principles will prevail no matter what comes!
Today I ask you, What Are You Thankful For? Share it with others and surround yourself with those who are thankful and grateful to be living in such a great country, America, home of the brave and the free.
