"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1Thessalonians 5:18
This past week was Thanksgiving. Like many families, we spent time around our table enjoying a feast and thanking God for his blessings this past year. What we didn't realize was just how thankful we would be by the end of the weekend.
Hubby's dad went to the hospital Thanksgiving night and was in ICU on Friday with heart problems. We were VERY thankful that he was able to come home this weekend, and it looks (he's seeing the cardiologist today) like he did NOT have a heart attack.
Then, we found out my grandpa was in ICU Sunday nite/Monday morning with a stroke. Again, we were blessed with the news that it was a small stroke, and it only seems to be affecting his left leg~~and even that is minimal.
It has truly been joy to see these two men, who are very important in my life, talking and laughing, knowing themselves how blessed they are. We are very thankful that God has allowed them to be with us here for a while longer. Giving thanks in ALL circumstances is hard sometimes, but it is situations like these that put life into perspective and we are reminded what is really important in life.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God"
1 Corinthians 10:31
