Thankful for Love

This week we have set apart to celebrate Thanksgiving. As I sit and meditate on how thankful/grateful I am, my thoughts begin with the Creator of all.  I cannot contain the overflowing joy I feel and have begun to praise Him with the very breath He has given me.

Genesis 2:7 states “Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.”  Think about how personal this is.  We were not created from a distance, but every part of us, every quark was formed by Him. God could have spoken breath in us but instead, chose to breathe it into our nostrils.  In this very moment, I see not only Creator but Father.  He did not create us without thought. We were created with careful consideration and formed. We were formed from love, by love and out of love.  Love which overflowed from Love Himself.

Thank you, Father!

On this day, I am thankful for the Creator, my Father, Love, and the breath of life.  This, within itself, is enough to pause and meditate on.  Allow yourself to not only be thankful but also be overwhelmed by the gifts that were manifested because of the Fathers love for each one of us.
