On this eve of Thanksgiving in the United States, I cannot think of a more fitting meditation than those written by the Psalmist over 3,000 years ago:
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light. – Psalm 36:7-9
As you prepare to share this season of Thanksgiving reflect on these words. Even if your dinner table is sparse and your room empty of all save your own thoughts take a moment to reflect on what it means to be a child of God who is always present with you. Notice how often the Psalmist says, “your” and “you” in these few verses. Be embraced by your God who is your life to day. – Ron Friesen
