Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I started writing this thanksgiving note and a thought came to mind with question marks. What do I have to thank God for today???

The obvious is all around me, and it is something to praise God, but I also thought of listen the blessings my soul is highlighting today. The things we have a tendency to leave behind the curtains, as if ashamed of the process God uses to mold us into the image of his son, Jesus Christ.

And so, I want to thank God for friends who were with me before my salvation and transformation to the kingdom of God. Those which without understanding or acceptance of the new me, stayed close and helped me in times of hardship.

I thank God for my family in Brasil. They at distance and in their own ways have strengthened me through their love, patience and by being the reminder of my spiritual and cultural roots. And my family here in America, who have shaped the adult I am today, and have provided for me and my children, family nourishment.

And so, my thanksgiving comes with a reminder of where I came from spiritually, and where I am today. “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wreck liks me”. This is the melody my spirit is humming today, in thanksgiving to God’s work in my life, because no other words would be able to express how thankful I am to God, for giving his only son to die in the cross, to guarantee my salvation.

God bless everyone who is reading this message today, with the same love and compaission he had for my soul. May the upcoming Holiday season be used to worship and praise, the only King of our hearts. Jesus Christ! Colossians 3:12-17                   Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
