"I will praise God's name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving."
This Thanksgiving I'm most thankful that God opened the right doors, in the right places, to the right people, in the right moments. I'm thankful that Love and Grace never fail. I'm thankful for what God has done, and for what He is planning to do. I'm thankful that Grace turns to Gratitude, and Gratitude turns what we have into....ENOUGH.
I'm thankful that I'm on a flight to the Super-CALI-FORNIA-Backwoods, to spend time with my parents and grandparents in the little town where I grew up. There's a mile-long dirt road leading to a house with a barn full of 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, and trucks. There's a confederate flag ("it's about the way we were raised and our Southern ways") hanging in the garage, and there's a porch that wraps around the house.
"It's those old dirts roads I've been missin," until Tuesday I'll be, "sitting back thinking about the good old days, the way I was raised in our Southern ways....I'll be where I need to go, back in the woods...off the road with trucks and four wheels."
From my home and my heart to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.
