You've still got it, baby

Miles is 4 1/2. Miles is hilarious. Since this blog is mostly for me, I really wanted to write down some of his funny moments so I won't forget just how funny he is at this age.

For example, this past Sunday morning I asked both boys to go ahead and get in the car so we could leave for church. When I got in the car, Miles was up in the front seat, leaning forward and looking into the mirror. I asked what he was doing and he said he was making sure his hair looked good. I assured him that, yes, it looked good and told him to sit in his car seat. As he leaned back into his seat he said "Yep, I still got it". Oh yeah, baby, you've still got it.

...that's how I feel tonight. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and we have so much to be thankful for. There are so many hurting around us, so much sadness and suffering just in our little corner of the world. We know personally of several marriages in crises, an unborn baby with a frightening diagnosis, a suicide attempt, death of a parent, bankruptcy. I almost feel guilty that our family and extended family are well, healthy, happy. Instead I give praise to Whom it is due:

"The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving." (Psalm 28:7)

And, I know that in a split second our good health and happiness can be taken away. So, I thank Him for the blessings of today and pray for strength and wisdom to face the days when I don't feel so very thankful.

Hope your Thanksgiving Day is fun and filled with all the good things you love!
