Happy Thanksgiving!

I have so much to be thankful for, and the Bible addresses thankfulness so thoroughly, that I actually won't be able to post my article on Thanksgiving in time. Sorry! However, I did want to leave you with a couple of verses, to remind you why to be thankful and to Whom to be thankful.

James 1:17:

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Romans 8:28

God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love the Lord.

Realize this Thanksgiving that every good thing comes from the Lord--for which He should be thanked--and every seemingly bad thing He will cause to be a good thing. There is no person on this planet or in history who does not have reason to thank God--and thank Him endlessly. He should literally be thanked always and for everything (I'll get into that more in a future post.). Yet, setting aside a special day is okay, too, to specifically thank Him for all His many blessings and gifts.

Note: Because every good thing comes from God does not mean we can't thank people who have blessed us--it just means we should also thank God FOR those people.

I wish I could write more....in the future, Lord-willing.

Thanksgiving Blessings,

I thanked God before, during and after thanksgiving dinner the other night. I think he deserves many, you're right!

Is it possible to add teammembers to a personal blog? I created a blog on my google account about creationism, and I want to know if I can add teammembers. If so, would you be interested in being one? You wouldn't have to post at any regular rate if you're too busy to post often.

Oh, almost forgot, here's the link:

I think you can add teammembers to any blog (I don't think there's any technical difference between a "personal blog" and, say, The Christmas Watch; it's just the blog administrator's personal preference). Go to Settings; then, on the far right, there's a link called "Permissions"; click that; to invite someone, click on the button "Invite" (or something along those lines); then you put in the e-mail address of the person you want to invite to become a teammember.

I'm really interested in the Creation issue, and I'll probably post about that in the future, but I really don't know how regularly I could contribute. Perhaps, I could copy my posts on Creation from Kingdom Advancing on to your blog (posts from the past or in the future--it's up to you.) So, if you want me to become a teammemmber, I'm up to it.

Tell me if you're going to invite me and I'll e-mail you my e-mail address.

Yes, that works for me, you can copy your posts whenever you happen to write on the subject, so that there will be diverse material, not just my ramblings. If that's okay with you, that is.

I'll let you know when I'm ready - not just yet.
Thanks so much.
