Happy Thanksgiving

Had it not been for your law, I would have perished in my affliction.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

Happy Happy Thanksgiving to my blog readers and followers.

As I took my afternoon walk recently accompanied by my great nephew Cairon, a Common Grackle seemingly joined me in proclaiming the words of the Psalmist David ~ “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. - Psalm 121:1-2

"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb”.1 “I love you with an everlasting love”2. At times, we may be misunderstood by others. Words like these spoken from our through the prophet Jeremiah, reminds us of the depth of God’s
love for us. Even when others seem to misunderstand us, I think it would be difficult for the One who knows and loves us to this degree to not understand us. 
To me, that’s good news! What do you think?
Heavenly Father, sometimes when I am misunderstood by others, I become disappointed and hurt. During these times, help me to respond through Your eyes of love, mercy, and grace,
In Jesus’ name,
1. Jeremiah 1:5; 2. Jeremiah 31:3b
