In between jobs, many people think they have little for which to give thanks. In reality, I give thanks for each one of you as God has brought you to the point that your eyes have been opened to see more specifically how He works in you and for you. To view the time between work assignments as a God-given sabbatical to expand your network of associations, to sharpen your technical skills, and to spend time with Father to understand better how He wants you to use the passion He has placed within you shows a significant growth in your relationship with and your trust in His Love and His leadership in your life.
What an amazing place to be at this special time of Thanksgiving.
Come, Ye Thankful People, Come ST. GEORGE’S WINDSOR
Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.
All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown, unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade, and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.
For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away.
Give His angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.
Even so, Lord, quickly come to Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin.
There forever purified, in Thy presence to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels, come, raise the glorious harvest home
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
