Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This week is such a special week for me because it offers an opportunity for me to thank God very specifically for the many blessings He has given me. Above all of the many material things with which God has blessed my husband and me (a comfortable home, decent health, enough money to provide for our needs, etc.), we are fortunate enough to have each other and a family that loves and supports us. I can’t wait to spend this beautiful holiday with our family members and friends.

Because I want you to have the same opportunity, there will be no lesson today. Instead I have put together a special FOP blog post with photos of things for which I am thankful. Enjoy.

I am thankful for:

Until we meet again, I wish all of you brilliant flashes of perspective!
