thanksgivingHAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY

From: Christian Post, Max Lucado:

“Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, a season to stop and give thanks. Just the word lifts the spirit. To say thanks is to celebrate a gift. Something. Anything. To say thanks is to cross the tracks from have-not to have-much, from the excluded to the recruited. Thanks proclaims, “I’m not disadvantaged, disabled, victimized, scandalized, forgotten, or ignored. I am blessed.” Gratitude is a dialysis of sorts. It flushes the self-pity out of our systems.

In Scripture the idea of giving thanks is not a suggestion or recommendation; it is a command. It carries the same weight as “love your neighbor” and “give to the poor.” More than a hundred times, either by imperative or example, the Bible commands us to be thankful. If quantity implies gravity, God takes thanksgiving very seriously…”

To our readers,

My wife and I are grateful for Jesus who paid our debt and tore the curtain from top to bottom giving us access to Himself

My wife and I are grateful for God’s Word, the Bible, that never ceases to amaze us

My wife and I are grateful for family, good health, friends, and blessings too numerous to count

My wife and I are grateful to be able to spend Thanksgiving with our son and his wife in the mid-west after not seeing them for 6 months

My wife and I are grateful for you – our day starts with a 7 AM post and searching news headlines that point to God’s unfolding plan

May God richly bless each of you

Breitbart: “Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, is demanding that the state’s Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon offer a public explanation as to why he told the National Guard which he had previously mobilized to stand down in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday night as the city burned in riots.

On Fox News on Tuesday morning, Kinder told anchor Martha MacCallum that Nixon kept the National Guard away as Ferguson burned—and questioned whether he did so in coordination with top officials from President Barack Obama’s administration.”

Opinion: Do things feel strangely different? Does it feel like life-long norms and values have disappeared?

I get the feeling that we are just getting started.

The nation’s first black president and first black attorney general have fomented a nation at war with each other. The president’s Race Advisor is Reverend Al Sharpton, who offers no prayers, but invokes conflict ““We can lose a round, but the fight is not over” …

The nation is at war Al, and the Prince of Peace is being ignored.

Newsmax: “A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked weeks of sometimes-violent protests.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence.

At least nine votes would have been required to indict Wilson.

The Justice Department is conducting an investigation into possible civil rights violations that could result in federal charges.”

Opinion: Pray for our nation: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. ” 2 Chronicles 7:14
