Dear Lord,

Thank you so much for all that done for us this year.  If our loved ones had to travel, thank you for bring them home to us safely.  If we have to travel to them, we thank you for a safe journey.

We thank you Lord for the food that we are able to eat, and know that all of it is through you.  We understand that we are blessed to have, while many families are without.

Thanksgiving is not just about food and sales, but it is time to truly reflect on You and give You thanks for all that you have provided.

We thank you Lord for our family, and the company that they provide.

For those who have sick loved ones: I ask Lord that you pray over them, and watch them as their family celebrates with You.

For those who are mourning over the loss of loved ones: please Lord grant them peace and knowledge that they are never really alone.  Family holidays will be hard, but knowing that our loved ones made positive memories helps us get through it.

For our troops overseas who are celebrating Thanksgiving without their families: thank you Lord for their sacrifice.  Because what we have would not be possible without them.  Also, watch over their families as they celebrate miles and even countries away.

Our heart goes out to you Lord, and we sing our praises in your name–always.

From my family to yours: Happy Thanksgiving!
