We have much to be thankful in the USA. We have the Constitution that proclaims are rights are from our creator not bestowed upon us by a government. However Obama has trampled on those rights and in fact is about to release thousands of new regulations. Like Obama-mess—health care—who knows what is in these new regulations and more importantly why didn’t the people have a say in them? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/dec/21/obama-announces-new-wave-proposed-regulations/
We have freedom of the press, although the deck is now stacked and portions of the press are in the tank with the government they are supposed to keep an eye on. Think of the non-reporting on the Benghazi incident, how the media was silent on fast and furious and how we are fed a steady stream of pabulum like Bill Cosby, Ebola, Anthony Weiner, the latest antics from Miley Cyrus, the Jodi Arias trail and when all else fails bring in O.J. for a cameo.
We can still go to the church of our choice although Homeland Security declared that Bible believing Christians should be labeled terrorist. http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/10/u-s-military-taught-treat-christians-as-extremists-potential-terrorists/
We have much to be thankful for, but our nation is more separated along racial lines since perhaps during the Martin Luther King era.
I could go on, but I think you get the point.
Take a moment today after the feast of turkey with all the trimmings and have your family sit quietly at the table and then pray. Pray for our country, pray for forgiveness. Pray for each other and above all give thanks to our creator, from whom all blessings flow.
