A Month of Thanks: Day 11

Psalm 107:1 "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever."

1. I'm thankful for the many veterans that I personally know and for all of those I don't know. I think that we should celebrate veterans every day. We wouldn't have any of the freedoms we have I this country without the sacrifice of so many. Thank you to those who have endured days of separation from your loved ones, who have experienced pain and loss of those around you, maybe even some have had physical or mental loss. Whatever it may be, know that we appreciate your sacrifice for our country, which has given our family the freedoms we love and enjoy.

2. I'm thankful to live in America. We have so many things to be thankful for in living here. We have freedom of speech, religion, to bear arms, a right to a fair trial, and so on. These are things that we take for granted too many times, but things that I am very grateful. I'm glad that I don't have to worship in a secret, underground church, as it is in some countries. I am thankful that we can openly exchange ideas and have freedom to any information without a government limiting what we can access. I'm very grateful that God brought my mom's family from the Netherlands to America 56 years ago!!
