Thanksgiving. Alone?

No. Not alone. Believe it or not, the whole plane load expresses thanks. I’ve never met such a cheer filled bunch of travelers. “Happy Thanksgiving” resounds everywhere. Friendly conversations carry on. Travelers call friends up until the moment the boarding doors close and as soon as we touch down- all to wish others the season’s cheer. 

I wonder. 
It’s something how a holiday can make people remember what’s really important. 
I’m thankful too. For a loving family at home. For the prayers of friends. For an opportunity to take another stab at darkness. 
Most of all, I’m thankful for the fact that we have something to be thankful for every day of the year- Being children of the King is no ordinary privilege.

I’m on my way to meet with 45 visionary young people in Europe to discuss the work of God. 
Prayers would most certainly be appreciated. 




Written on Thanksgiving day on the plane. Couldn't be posted until today.

  4. So nice to come across your family blog and be your first and only visitor from Japan. A while ago I heard about the meetings in Europe--praying that all goes well.
