Just sitting here, and realized that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, from the time that I am writing this. I haven't heard a lot of people talking about it, not hearing great preparations for it. And, I know that one of the reasons for that is the COVID situation, which is causing concern for family gatherings, public gatherings, and community programs. Some people may think that 2020 hasn't given us much to be thankful for, and it has been a difficult stretch for a lot of people. But, while we may not get together for turkey, the football games may look different, and the insanity of Black Friday may not have it's usual chaos, there is always a reason to be thankful, especially for Christians. Let's not let our thankfulness be driven by food, sports and shopping. If we are, really, scratching around, looking for a reason to be grateful, we have to look no further than the Cross. The power of the Cross is always there, unaffected by pandemics and pandemonium. And it gives us the greatest reason, of all, to be thankful. If we have accepted, and professed, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, then the worst thing that can happen to us, will never happen to us, we will never see the fires of Hell. And, for that, we should be grateful every day, not just one day on a calendar. Selah!
