In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Thanksgiving. As a holiday, this is a day filled with family, food, and football. It also is a day to rest and reflect on God’s goodness to us and the many blessings we have to be thankful for.

For each new morning with its light,
for rest and shelter of the night,
for health and food,
for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I hear the word ‘thanksgiving’, I envision a heart overflowing with appreciation and gratitude. It is more than a simple thank you or “I am blessed”.

It is a heart and mind open wide with recognition of all the things, big and small, that we are fortunate enough to have.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
