I have fallen in love with Thanksgiving again, and I owe it all to Barbara Rainey’s book, “Thanksgiving A Time To Remember.” Not only have I fallen in love with this holiday, but I have also fallen in love with America, especially the faithful Christians who first settled here. I no longer just grudgingly cook for days for that 15 minutes of palate pleasure, but now I cook to honor those who have come before me in order for my family and I to worship our God and read His Word freely. Praise God!
The book was actually given to me as an answer to prayer. I had been praying for a way to really make this holiday special for my family while honoring our Creator. I had been praying for a new Thanksgiving tradition, and this book is it.
What are your Thanksgiving traditions, other than eating the traditional meal? Let me know in the comment section below.
Now, in honor of Thanksgiving, I present my list of top 10 things that I am thankful for:
10 My faithful, furry, and four legged running partner
9 Our warm home
8 This beautiful country
7 Calvary Chapel Yelm and all the faithful servants there
6 Our good health
5 My faithful friends
4 My mother and father
3 Each of my 5 children
2 My amazing husband who loves me as his own body
1 God’s mercy and grace through His Son
Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless America!
