A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR
We Americans have a lot to be thankful for—guess you’ve heard that before, but we need to be reminded. I’ve often wondered why I was born in the good old USA instead of some “Third world” country, being forced to eat out of a garbage dump and sleeping on the floor. I guess I could say, ”because God is good”, but that doesn’t explain it. God is good regardless of where we’re born or what the circumstances are. We can only attribute our birth- place and our blessings to the providence of God. Regardless of the case, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for.
Seven years ago our beloved nation suffered a devastating blow from our enemies. A lot has ensued since that dreadful day. We sent our young men and women off to war in an effort to take the fight to our enemies, rather than giving them free course to strike again. With all the ,“Bush bashing” that takes place I believe we need to give credit where credit I due. I certainly don’t agree with our president on everything, but I deeply appreciate the good he has done. We haven’t had an attack on our home front for seven years. We also over threw a dictator, liberated a nation, and established a democracy. How can we not be thankful for that?
I’m fed up with all the bellyaching because the economy takes a dip, etc. Instead of complaining we should thank God that we have it better than any place on earth and a president who has the guts to buck the tide of public opinion and do what’s needed instead of what’s popular. I don’t know what history will record about his presidency, but as one who lived through it I say “THANKS!”
Our nation faces a lot of uncertainties and challenges. Our future is uncertain, but God is still on His throne and He has a plan. Let us stop complaining about our circumstances—they could be a lot worse. As we observe the anniversary of 9-11 let us pause to thank God for our blessings. After all, we have a lot to be thankful for. Think about it!
