As the season of our savior's birth comes upon us, I think all people should stop to think of all we have to be thankful for.
We have forgiveness and mercy from God, our Lord. We have his son, who died for our sins. We have the Holy Spirit to teach and guide us.
We have a country to live in where we have freedoms, jobs, homes, families and friends. Plenty of opportunities to live as we wish.
We have our military men and women, our police officers and firefighters, rescue workers, doctors, nurses, and volunteers who help in hard times.
There are many more blessings out there. Our blessed life is full of the love and forgiveness of our heavenly father, his son our Lord, and the Holy Spirit. Read of them in the Bible - God's holy word and works. - Jim Conway, Sioux City
