Giving Thanks

We enjoyed an American-style Thanksgiving dinner with our Camino Global teammates on Tuesday of this week, so we are missing the ritual kitchen fragrances of the tradition on Thursday, but we’re always thankful and have much to thank God for. Mostly we give thanks to God for God. He is our all in all.

As is common for the occasion, we took time and went around the table three times for each person, even the kids, to give a word of thanks to God. That was more than enough to fill our hearts, and we honestly could have skipped the meal.

 

 

I cannot imagine what it is like for the vast majority of people in this world who do not celebrate a day of thanksgiving, and even if they did, what meaning would there be in simply “giving thanks” without knowing the God to whom we all owe our gratitude? There is no day of giving thanks on the calendar in Mexico. May the people of this nation come to know the God who loves them and know the reason for giving all their thanks to Him.
