"A thankful attitude opens windows of heaven.
Spiritual blessings fall freely onto you through these openings into eternity ... "
These words were the ones that I read early on Thanksgiving Day - and they are the words that keep coming to my mind at the close of a very wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving with our family home. Twenty-three family filled the rooms of our home last Thursday, and love was everywhere. It seems that our time together was a "touch of heaven".
When children are grown, and they all return home, and love is there - my mother heart overflows, hardly able to contain it all. Life is not perfect, and trials are always with us - but where there is love, and hearts full of thankfulness, it is as if we are blessed with glimpses of heaven itself. What the love of a husband and wife, and love between family is meant to be - and how can we be so blessed to hold it in our hands? A taste of even more to come ... all a gift from a loving God.
(And continuing my listing of thanks, everyday, in my laptop journal and iPhone journal)
