A recounting of the days reveals blessings abound

MOORE — The multi-colored leaves glisten as the sun shines through the trees. The air is cool and the gentle breeze blows the fallen leaves into piles just waiting for a child to jump into.

In less than 24 hours it will be Thanksgiving. This past year has flown by in warp speed. So many things have transpired and there is so much to be thankful for our; hearts swell.

For family, friends, health and financial blessings, but even more than these bountiful gifts given to us from Our Heavenly Father, our hearts are thankful for the simple things. 

Like knowing when we pray that God always hears us.

Like the assurance that Our Heavenly Father watches from above, ready to lend a hand when it is needed.

Like the comfort that comes from only God Above.

Like the peace that “passeth all understanding,” that holds us together during our most intense trials.

Like the Hand that holds ours when we reach up to Him.

Like the knowledge that He will never leave us or forsake us.

So many times you have come to our rescue this past year, Dear Lord. Not just for the major catastrophes, but even those small situations that we know we got through only because of Your Grace.

This this time of Thanksgiving our hearts are full of gratitude. Thank you for each and every blessing, both great and small.  

Life’s detours

When I turned onto 36th Avenue NW, I knew something was wrong. Cars were backed up and many made U-turns in an attempt to avoid the snarl.

After hedging forward at a turtle’s pace, the reason why was suddenly clear. The “Road Closed” sign blocked both sides of the road. Drivers had to turn left into a subdivision or make a U-turn to find another route.
