Thanksgiving is my husband's favorite time of the year. He says and I quote in his words, "No one expects anything from you other than your presence".
I'll let you think about that phrase on your on without my elaboration......
What could be more important than being in the presence of the ones you love the most and hold dearest to your heart?
I can't help but think about how our Lord Jesus feels when we wander from His presence. His ultimate desire is to fellowship with us.
As Thanksgiving is drawing near let us all be reminded that truly this day should be one that brings us in remembrance of our many blessings but also a day to remind us that our time on this earth that is spent with those we love is short.
Let's be grateful for those people that can be in our presence...and more so....let's not forsake the "gift" of being in His presence.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
