Thankful

As Sayre says, "November is a month to recognize the things you are thankful for in your life - including the people who are serving our country. Tell us what you are thankful for!"


One of my favourite hymns from long ago...
"Thank you for every for every new good morning
Thank you for every fresh new day"


Sacrifice
November is the month to be thankful for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 


Another verse says
"Thank you, oh Lord, I want to thank you, that I'm free to thank"

This resonates in these troubled times; having just read "The bookseller of Kabul" by Agne Seirstad and "My forbidden face" by Latifa.


Companionship
Canine companions say nothing, yet speak volumes...
OH drives me mad; yet keeps me sane...
The two Ms and our coffee afternoons...
God-daughter.
Long time friends from school days.
Not forgetting my click of the mouse friends.


Learning and education...particularly the Open University and the friends I have made thro' my studies and on-line meetings.

Beautiful, Joangee! The freedom to be who we are is hard-won, not just on a personal level, but as nations. I'm also very thankful for the men and women who sacrifice their time and sometimes their lives so that I can live mine in freedom!

Love the note on OH... so true!

I love remembering the sacrifice of our brave heroes. Something in your post reminded me that we need to be thankful, always, for the sacrifice of our greatest hero, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you.
