We gather together to count the Lord’s blessings . . .so goes the old hymn. In a world that believes more is always better, may we – at least for one day – challenge the carelly crafted advertisements and marketing schemes by focusing on the giver of all gifts, being especially thankful for the special people He has brought into our lives; may each one of them know that we are grateful for who they are and how they’ve blessed us. Come ye thankful people come . . .
