As Thanksgiving approaches, I wanted to share a wonderful story I will never forget.
And my God will supply all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
– Phillipians 4:19 NASB
On a crisp Thanksgiving morning in 2012, I awoke to my four-year-old daughter crying.
“Mommy, I don’t feel good.”
“Uh oh, you have a fever. Get some rest sweetheart.”
Now, what will I serve my family for our Thanksgiving dinner? After all, we were invited to eat at my brother and sister-in-law’s house.
I phoned Greg, “Sorry, we can’t make it this year. Alicia has a fever of 101.”
“No problem Sis. I hope she feels better. We’ll get together soon.”
I cuddled up on the couch with my six-year-old son and husband to watch the holiday parades.
A few hours later, there was a knock at our front door. Who could that be? To my surprise, Greg and Connie stood there with arms brimming with bags.
My jaw dropped, “Hi, what are you two doing here?”
“We thought since you guys couldn’t join us for Thanksgiving, we’d join you.”
That afternoon, we feasted on turkey and all the trimmings and fellowshipped. It amazed me how they drove sixty miles to share a scrumptous meal together.
There is so much to be thankful for this season. What are you thankful for?
