Be Thankful...

Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for. ~ Will Rogers
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. Amen Karl! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family today.

  2. Would it not be wonderful if we just had one thing to be thankful for? But wait a minute. I just found more than one.

    Isn't it worthy of our thanks that we can express ourselves in this manner without having some goons at our door.

    Isn't it worthy of our thanks that we have the internet, with its goods and its bads but what ever your position you are at liberty to express it?

    Isn't it worthy of our thanks that we have the privilege and capability of personally helping those who have fallen through the bureau cracks?

    If you hang your head for whatever reason, open your eyes and look at the shoes on your feet. Isn't that worthy of thanks?

    Isn't it worthy of our thanks that this nation, a present from God, is so large geographically, that a disaster like an earthquake, hurricane, or even a bombing in one city, or a drought leaves the rest of the country untouched and able to help the stricken areas?

    Even though many of us have experienced unhappy times, loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, homes destroyed by fire, flood, and other natural disasters, and some loss from the recession, we still can find something for which to be thankful.

    If there is nothing else for which you can give thanks, just consider this. You still have a loving, compassionate God who hears every prayer you utter and will in His time respond to you.

    In His Name and through His love, I bid all a reflective and grateful Thanksgiving Day.

    A Brother in His Family.

  3. Indeed. It also occurred to me that we may be getting more government than we bargained for, even if we're getting less than we pay for.
