On Thanksgiving, it's fire and ice.
On this day, Cindy and I will celebrate Thanksgiving by standing on top of an active volcano. We will see life in rain forests that thrive scant miles from lava. And while there we will give thanks.
And I am also giving thanks for God's healing. He made my body. And He is healing my dislocated shoulder. It is still outrageously sore. But it is out of the sling for a few hours. I shaved with my right hand, I tied my hiking boots, and I even touched the top of my head. Don't tell the doctor that I started this ten days early.
But here is the coolest thing. I am doing things that the average kid does without even a thought - except the shaving, of course. And I am so grateful to be doing these simple things - in such a magnificent place. I give glory and honor to Him for the sheer grandeur of this place. And I give Him my tears of joy (literally) for all the things that I selfishly take for granted. Thank you, my sweet Savior!
May each of you experience the joy that God has in store for you.
