On this day of Thanksgiving, we reflect on the blessings that have been bestowed upon us.
Of all the people on this planet, I cannot imagine one more blessed than I.
Notable among those blessings:
- A loving wife (who appears inclined to stick with me to the end).
- A healthy, loving, and happy family (that seems to enjoy my company).
- Enough – food, shelter, safety, love, money.
- Work that has meaning.
- A Creator that has gifted me with the things mentioned above, and the health of mind, body, and spirit to attend substantively to each.
I’ve not much in the way of riches, but wealth I have beyond measure.
“To whom much is given, much is required.”
If I take those words attributed to Jesus (Luke 12:48) to heart, then I’ve got quite a lot of work ahead of me.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
