A Thanksgiving verse for you:

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;  you are exalted as head over all.
Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things.
 In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
1 Chronicles 29:11-13 NIV
Giving Thanks
Freedom from Want -  One of the four illustrations in the Norman Rockwell's series The Four Freedoms, was inspired by Franklin Roosevelt's speech to congress in January of 1941, and published in the Saturday Evening Post in March 1943.  While not Rockwell's intention, this image soon (mistakenly) became an icon that represented the typical American Thanksgiving feast.  Roosevelt delivered his speech in the months that were inevitably leading up to war and what would be difficult times for our nation.  Once again we find ourselves in a difficult time, yet we can rely on the same provider that sustained our parents and grandparents and our nation through World War II.

Trisha and I see first-hand the poverty and want in countries that have abandoned the King or where He has never been worshiped.  Let's pray more fervently than ever that we as individuals, families and as a people return to the one who has blessed us so mightily.

Our prayer is that you and yours have a very happy and thankful Thanksgiving holiday.

Jody & Trisha

Post-script: Perhaps a better illustration to represent what our attitude should be on this wonderful holiday is this Rockwell illustration titled "Giving Thanks".
