This video speaks volumes to my heart. I hope you will watch and be moved. I pray that God might continue to open our eyes to those around us in need. Those here in this community, state, country, and world. That he may help us to view others daily as he does.

That was just an excerpt of Colossians chapter 3 that instructs us as believers to put away our old ways and take on the new image given through our rebirth in Christ. This passage makes it very clear that we are to live with a constant heart of gratitude. That we are to focus our hearts intently on Christ in all things and at all times. Doing everything as an act of praise and thanks.
Webster's dictionary defines Thanksgiving as the act of giving thanks; a prayer expressing gratitude; a public acknowledgement or celebration of divine goodness.
My prayer for this Thanksgiving Day is that we not make the celebration a one day event based on the history of this country. But in turn that we approach each day as a day of thanksgiving. A day when we are grateful in our prayers, actions, and acknowledgement of God.

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I do fully believe that His plan for our family is perfect and His timing is perfect. I also know that looking back over the course of my life even the things that were hard or that I struggled with He used them to mold me and steer me in the right direction. SO I know that everything is in His hands. I just feel very idle right now. My longing for our child is even stronger. I feel as though a piece of our family is missing. I don't know what she looks like, how tall she is, what her age is or much about her at all. I just she has been growing in my heart and I desire to hold her in my arms.
Another verse that I hold tucked in my heart: but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.... Isaiah 40:31

And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise - the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:12-16
