It’s Thanksgiving!

Today is a big day. It’s a day of gratitude, and we all have a lot to be thankful for. Sometimes that can be hard to see because the things life has thrown at us are just about all we can see. But God’s mercy–his grace, his incomparable love–are overflowing into our lives with every breath we take, every relationship, every moment of his kindness and patience.

Whether it’s an exciting day or a hard day for you, pause and reflect on the past year. What pleasant and happy things have happened? What difficult things have come your way? How can you see the mercies of God and his unrelenting love in the middle of it all?

What things can you do today to point your heart toward grace? Enjoy family. Eat good food. Watch the Boys beat the Skins! And let’s be a people of gratitude and grace.
