To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (KJV) ( Ecclesiastes 3:1 )
Sometime’s bad things happen to good people. But how do you make peace with this thought, especially when you are fighting back anger, hurt, betrayal, or loneliness? It’s important to realize God has perfect timing, even when we can’t understand it. Without placing your faith in His timing, you leave room for resentment, despair, and rebellion. When you can’t see the work God is doing through tragedy, remain faithful in knowing God’s timing is perfect.
I had a surprisingly good Thanksgiving. I found out my parents were going to my sister’s in-laws, so I am especially glad I wasn’t home. They are not nice people. Then I got to talk to a friend all during the Thanksgiving Day Parade, so it was like she was here with me. For most of the day, I relaxed. At 6, I went down to my neighbor’s apartment for Thanksgiving dinner. It was simple but yummy. Then I came home and watched The Wizard of Oz. It was a pretty good day.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I wanted to tell you a few things that I am thankful for this year. I’m thankful for my good friends Jennifer and Susan. Though they are not here with me (one‘s in TX, the other in NYC), they are with me in my heart. Speaking of being in my heart, I am also thankful for my loving family, who I hope will have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m also thankful for my job. This time last year it was uncertain if I’d have one. I’m also thankful for the people I work with who I love dearly. I am thankful for my new neighbor who is having me downstairs for Thanksgiving dinner today. I have so much to be thankful for this year. What are you most thankful for?
