I deal in hope :

Giving Thanks November 2017

We’re getting ready to celebrate the Scheidies weekend Thankmas. I will not be wishing anyone “Happy Turkey Day.” That flies in the face of history and the whole reason for the holiday.

Calling Thanksgiving “Turkey Day,” denies God His rightful
due even one day of the year. I respond with “Happy Thanksgiving” and then make sure I give thanks and count my blessings other days as well–starting with giving thanks for the Savior who loves and saved me, loving family and friends and a country founded on Biblical principles.

I will give thanks for Christmas as well, wishing others a Merry “Christ” mas as I worship and honor Jesus Christ.

Give thanks to the LORD because he is good, because his
mercy endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods because his
mercy endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords because his
mercy endures forever. Give thanks to the only one who does miraculous things- because his mercy endures forever. to the one who made the heavens by his understanding- because his mercy endures forever. —Psalm 136:1-5
