I am thankful for my family because without them I would have nothing and, probably, would not be around now. I am thankful that God has allowed me my many years of life to live and hope that he allows me many more. I am thankful for all of my closest friends that help keep my head on straight. I am thankful for everyone in America who allows this county to keep on moving through all the struggles we may encounter.
I am thankful for God Almighty, who sent his son to die that we might have eternal life. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16.
I am thankful that God has blessed me every day of my life with his salvation, healing, wisdom, knowledge, forgiveness, guidance, peace, and his unconditional love.
I am thankful for the many blessings that God has given me: my husband, Richard, of 23 years, my daughters, Ashley and Rebecca, granddaughter Madison, son-in-law-to-be Ervin Stapleton, family and friends.
I am thankful for a God-fearing grandmother who revealed to me God and his love for me. Although she may not be with me this Thanksgiving, I rest in knowing that she is present with the Lord.
God bless and happy Thanksgiving.
I'm thankful to be spending this Thanksgiving with many of my family members, many of whom I rarely get to see. I'm also thankful for my wonderful husband, Chuck, two great children, Meagan and Braxton, and God, who has blessed me with all of them.
I am most thankful for God and his many blessings. I am also very thankful for my home, my family, and my job. Another thing for which I am extremely thankful is that during my life I had the chance to know all of my grandparents and several of my great-grandparents. A lot of people never have that chance and I consider myself very lucky that I had that opportunity.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, and God bless!
My husband, Jim, and I have lived in Winchester not quite 13 months. Last Thanksgiving we were new to the area, Jim had taken on a new job, and our youngest daughter, Joy, had been in Iraq serving with the 101st Airborne out of Fort Campbell, for two months. We were like fish out of water!
The longest year of our lives passed by making friends, finding a wonderful church, and praying for the safety of our daughter.
Thanksgiving and Christmas went by in 2005 without Joy being present for the first time. It was so hard. On Sept. 11, 2006, God answered our prayers, and she came home safely. We were there to watch her plane land at Fort Campbell and finally get to hug her and love her openly.
I am thankful this year that our family will be together for the holidays. God answered our prayers.
