With Thanksgiving in some way we were all thankful for the basics we all share. We are thankful for wives, husbands, families, jobs, homes and such. We are thankful for things that are coming that we know are coming. Here is the question are we thankful for the trials we are enduring? Did anyone say thank you Lord for the hurts I have gone through? Has anyone ever said God thank you for someone taking away from me or my spouse leaving me or the addiction I am enduring? I know I did not do this! I have learned to look at the trials and say Lord I don't understand why this is happening but I thank you for what I am going to learn through this experience. It is a fight to continue to do this but I have begun to see differently and look at situations differently. Some food for thought.
