Today is Thanksgiving Day! And I am truly thankful to God for His provision in my life.

I have a memory branded into my memory of Thanksgiving. It was Thanksgiving Day, 1967. I was serving in the US Army stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky, working in the basement of Post Headquarters with a lot of brass around. I had a 4-day holiday pass, so I bought a Greyhound Bus ticket to the old bus station in Fort Wayne. I left base about 4PM and arrived in Fort Wayne about 2AM. Dad drove down there to pick me up.

After Thanksgiving dinner, Dad and I took our shotguns and went rabbit hunting together. The rabbits all survived that day, but what a memory I still have of my Dad mentoring me. Whenever I think of Thanksgiving I recall that time I had with my Dad.

What’s a memory etched in your mind when you think of Thanksgiving Day?

A very special day for us. BJ and I met on Thanksgiving, and we got engaged the following Thanksgiving. Our family always enjoys the gift exchange at Thanksgiving. We like it that way. Now we can enjoy the real meaning of Christmas.

I have many memories of Thanksgiving at both my family and my wife’s family houses, but yesterday I got to have Thanksgiving dinner with my Dad and Mom at Betz Nursing Home in Auburn. It was great!! We talked and tallked about many things and after I left with many memories, I thought this will be the last year that I spend with both my Dad and Mom for Thanksgiving. I was sad at first, but I thought I will be with them forever in Heaven. Praise God for his love for us!!

This Thanksgiving, I got the stomach flu and I was not able to be with my family this year. In previous years, I have always cherished Thanksgiving because that is the one time we all get together.
