giving of thanks

it's never a day too late to be thankful, right?
i'm reminded how thankful i am for the one thing in this world that makes life worth living, l.o.v.e.
the undeserved, immense love i receive from a gracious God,
the unconditional, constant love of my dear family,
and the encouraging and caring love of friends.

i've been stricken with how thankful we think we are.
 we including myself.
we give thanks for oh so important things.....
cell phones.
materials, materials, materials, MATERIALS.
fail to see this in modern society....take a look at what occupied most american's days today, SHOPPING.
some poor souls even started standing in line yesterday on THANKSGIVING for these possessions....
things you can't take with you.
we are so lonely, yet keep grabbing anything in sight that will push us further away from human interaction.
this makes me oh so sad......

the thing i'm most thankful for is that to which is not seen but felt.
that indescribable string of l.o.v.e that binds me to souls, faces, loved ones...not THINGS.
i pray that the good LORD will continue to give me wake up calls as to what life is worth living for.

"Life is a gorgeous, broken gift.
Six billion+ pieces waiting to be fixed.
Love letters that were never signed, sent to where we live."
