Olivia’s Thanksgiving Greeting ~ 2007
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Last week as William was bagging our groceries he asked, “Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving Day?”
When I answered, “Everyday is thanksgiving day!” he said, “I wish….”
Not hearing what he had wished, I asked him on our way out, “What did you wish?”
He said, “That everyday was thanksgiving day for me.”
Close enough to whisper the secret, I said, “It can be—in Jesus Christ.”
I had never seen William, and don’t know if he will be there on our next visit, but enough was said to give him hope. A seed was planted with the prayer that the Lord will water it, and lead this young man to His Word, give him a new heart, and a spirit of thanksgiving for every day of his life.
There was an open door, and a humble heart desiring only what Jesus Christ can give. We praise the Lord for the short times in our lives when we can witness of His grace to others; and leave the results to him.
“I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;” 1 Corinthians 1:4-5
