November, turkey, Thanksgiving, giving thanks.

Not long ago we had friends over for a meal and our guests were beginning a 28 day no complaining challenge. It has offered a different perspective to the way I sometimes view challenges in this life.  A similar idea is the verse "in everything give thanks." Last Sunday I overdid it, one of the things I did was run a 10K and now my right knee is a little sore. (I'm already on the uptick). Sunday morning my knee was fine and I didn't even think about my knee, no complaining but no being thankful either. As I was running I passed a guy that I'm sure didn't have right knee pain after the race. I can be sure because missing his leg from just above the knee down. So I can complain about my knee being sore, or I can forget to be thankful that I have a knee, but to do so is to miss so much. I wonder if someday we will able look back on our lives a realize how acute the danger was, that we were unaware of?

As I look back on the year for our family it has been in a very good way boring. While I know others whose each day is a challenge almost every day who would be thankful for the minor things I find myself complaining about. This year I have been reminded to be thankful in everything, for the time when everything is working without issue and to be thankful when life is hard. Mostly I have been reminded to be thankful for the one who will never leave me or forsake me.

Thank you for making our farm your farm,

Jeremy, Cherie and everyone at MHF
