I haven’t been taking very many pictures lately because—sigh—my favorite camera lens is broken and, frankly, at this point fixing it is just One More Thing.
So I haven’t.
Last night, though, as I knelt by the side of my bed to thank God for the day…
And to beg His forgiveness for my list of transgressions…I happened to glance at my sleeping 3-year-old. His hands were clasped and his visage, so peaceful. His day was done and it had been so busy. Now it was time for him to rest.
Which lately seems as long as a sheet of to-do’s on the day before Thanksgiving…
I’ve been very busy too. You know what, though? I’m thinking that you can relate to this. My prayer, then, is that we might join our hearts—you and me, in praying for the multiple needs of our family—that on this day, and tomorrow, and throughout the extremely busy season of Advent…
We might be at peace and we might be thankful.
Yes, there are many things that we lack—material needs, certainly, but also so many virtues.
Yet there are also so many things that we have.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
