Paul's Epistle...
"Thoughts Of Thanks #2"

Last week in this space I shared some of the hundreds of e-mails we received from readers sharing why they were especially thankful this Thanksgiving. As I mentioned, we can't possibly share them all, but I have read them and am glad so many of you took time to think about your reasons for thankfulness — and to share them. Here are some more, in no particular order:

The most succinct summation of that for which we should be thankful came from PJS in one word: "Jesus."

And the most unusual response I received was one from Kenny C. that simply said, "Psalm 115:1." I looked it up, and it's truly the spirit of Thanksgiving: "Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness." Amen.

Lord, may we all remember to be truly thankful each and every day of our lives, because You alone are truly worthy of our thanks and our praise.

- Paul
