Dear Grace and Emma Kate,

Last week, we celebrated another Thanksgiving.  If you take the Easter post, replace eggs and bunny with turkey and pilgrim and replace Easter with Thanksgiving, you've basically got the details of this holiday as well.  As if right on cue, the vomitorium began the night before Thanksgiving and lasted just long enough to knock us out of the Thanksgiving meal at Granny's.  Even so, we have so much to be thankful for.

The Thanksgiving season is spent making turkey crafts, learning about the first Thanksgiving, and listing things we are thankful for.  That is a list that could go on and on.  And on.  Yes, God has truly blessed us.  But here's the thing.  If you take away all the blessings, one thing remains.  God.  You see, His grace is sufficient.  He is all we need.  No matter if all those things on our thankful list were taken away, no matter what obstacles we face, no matter who is against us.  God is more powerful.  He is always there to pick us up, carry us through, heal us, and supply all our needs.  God is never surprised, never makes a mistake, and is never inadequate.  So give thanks in all circumstances and know that God will supply all your needs through His perfect plans.  He is worthy of our praise.

As you grow and learn more about God, my desire is that you will learn to trust His promises.  The world will fail us, we will fail on our own, but God never fails.  He offers His grace to all of us.  Claim it as your own.

Oh, how thankful I am for God's grace.

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.                      2 Corinthians 12:9
