Thanksgiving – the only truly Christian, American holiday, unadulterated by any add-on superstition. Pausing and reflecting for a moment on another year since last Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my son enduring combat in Iraq and yet coming home safely; I am thankful for my other three children, two sons and a daughter, and for two wonderful grandchildren, and a wonderful wife.
I am thankful for a job and all of God’s provision to me and my family; but most of all I am thankful for Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father, taking on my penalty and saving me, and for a Father who loves me enough to send His only begotten Son to die for me; and finally, I am thankful for resurrection power by which Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father even now, interceding on my behalf. On behalf of The Captain’s Journal, I wish my readers a very restful, peaceful and meaningful time of reflection on God’s provision this Thanksgiving season. My best to you and your family.
