As I always do at this this time of year, I have been talking to my patients about Thanksgiving and asking them what they are thankful for. Not surprising, some of them said they have nothing to be thankful for. Others said they were thankful for their friends and families, some said they were just thankful to be alive. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Day?
Psalm 100 : 4 says, "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." 1 Thessalonians 5: 18 says, " In every thing give thanks : for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." So if you're reading this in a hospital bed today, give thanks. If you are reading it after stuffing yourself at the Thanksgiving table, give thanks. If you are like the thousands still without power after Sandy, give thanks, for it is God's will for your life. He is still on the throne.
