My Thoughts I Am Thankful By Jenny Ellison As my thoughts wander back to days long gone by, never to return; I realize it is not just what I have had this year that I am thankful for, it is a whole lifetime of goodness from God. Without a moment hesitation, I am most thankful that I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. I am part of the family of God arid have a better life farther on down the way. I know it is in a place called heaven. I do not know where it is, but I do know the way. "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life". That is an unshakable stand. I have never been hungry for lack of food. I have never been cold for lack of clothing. As a child I did not wonder where the provision for our life came from. In the spring, everyone in the family plowed, planted, sowed and hoed. In summer we gathered what was needed for our table and dried, canned or buried the rest to help feed us during the long winter. Our home was hot in the summer, but warm in the winter. We snuggled together, three in a bed, and listened to the north wind howl around the comers of our little ugly house. Thanksgiving time was hog killing time. Jim Upton always came to help dad with the event. We children so looked forward to Jim staying overnight with us. He could tell the best tales and laughter rocked our small rooms. That night we had the best supper in the world. Fried tenderloin, black gravy, hot biscuits and mashed potatoes. We sat around the big kitchen table, lamplight glowing, and a roaring fire in the old Home Comfort. We were content. We were thankful. We did not ask for more-- It was enough. Thanksgiving Day, Morn baked a ham, made pies and filled bowl after bowl with all those vegetables we had raised that summer. She always left all the leiver food on the table until the next day so we could eat anytime we wanted too. I am thankful for my wonderful mother who loved me. She had a hard life, but did not complain. A *large book could not contain the those in the darkest places where record of her life, though it was a men would rather fight than plow short fifty-five years. Thank you, their fields. mother, I love you. I am thankful for my church family, how they cheer my days and are there in the darkest night. I am thankful for my childhood friends. How we remain young when we are 'together remembering when we were young. The good times of singing and running over the hills. I am thankful for precious memories. I am thankful that my husband worked hard and provided a home for me and our children. I am thankful for our children. John Mark, Beth Ellen and Matthew. They have been the best blessing of my life. They have brought me honor. I am thankful for their homes, their spouses. I am so very thankful for the grandchildren who give me so much delight. My heart grieves for Matthew, even today, but I am so glad he filled my life with his music and laughter. This life is not always easy--yet isn't there so much to be grateful for? Father God, tonight I am thankful that no enemy stalks our fields. Thank you for battles fought and won. Thank you for freedom to worship, to speak, to work with our hands and use our minds. As we pray for peace in our world, it is more needful to have peace in our hearts. If that were so, perhaps the land would have rest. As I look back, knowing the heartache, sorrow and loss that is ever present in all of our lives, I am thankful I know we can pass through those storms and come to this side of them with thankful hearts. I did not understand as I walked those roads. Perhaps you did not either. This I do know. My Heavenly Father said he would not forsake us or leave us alone. I have found His promises to be steadfast and sure. While we gather together this year, sharing our lives, I will think of the many who are in a foreign country, standing on the front line to protect us. I will be saddened by the hunger, suffering and tears of We bow our head, giving thanks to the Giver of all we have. We know full well the treacherous path ahead. We have come thus far--Protect us by Thy might and--Thank You, Lord. Amen. *** When prosperity comes, do not use all of it. --Confucius *** The world's longest tunnel Seikan in Japan.
