Wishing All Happy Thanksgiving!

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. – Psalm 100:3-5, NIV

IMG_0497Here in the U.S.A. is the special day we come together to eat turkey, watch football, and mostly to give thanks to God for His gifts this past year. And I think this is the most wonderful of holidays. I especially enjoy the new twists of Scandinavian food I experience by visiting my new in-laws 🙂

Regardless of whether or not this is your holiday, I think it is always good to give thanks to God.

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for so much. First, I am thankful for a God who turns ashes into beauty. Thankful for family and true friends. Good food, working cars, a loving munchkin who insists on sitting on my lap, and my beautiful, spunky Norwegian wife, Mrs. DM! And as a former college football player, I hope I will be able to give thanks for the opportunity to watch an NFL game or two today…we will see 😉
