"Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor. . . . Now, therefore, I do appoint Thursday, the 26th day of November 1789 . . . that we may all unite to render unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection."
How blessed every one of us truly is. Everything that we have, every provision afforded us, every next breath that we take all come from His mighty hand. There isn't a blessing we have that we can point at as being derived from another source. Love, truth, goodness, and the world itself would be undefined if not for His wisdom, power, and authority. Thank you Lord for loving the unlovely. Praise you Lord for blessing the unworthy. Thank you for your hand upon our boy each and every day that you grant him life. Thank you for your hand upon all of us.
Carson's first thanksgiving was a happy one. He is healthy and enjoying his week reprieve from the hospital. We have an appointment to return Monday for another scan and visit with the neurologists as well as next Thursday for his first visit to spina bifida clinic. Mom is doing so well as she is waking up faithfully through the night and keeping him on his schedule to eat every 3-4 hours. Dad, not so much, as Mom is too kind and lets him sleep through the cries. I try to keep up and help out where I can, but I am truly thankful for such a wonderful wife.
Thank you all again for your continued support and prayers for us. They are such a blessing and comfort. Thank you Lord for your watch and care for us!
