Thank Who

DumbLuckMy 1st entry into Debe Maxwell, CRS November Gratitude Challenge is that I'm thankful for knowing who to thank.

Having had what I think were Christian parents growing up I'm a little surprised that when I look back that they perpetuated some of the common myths about luck to their children. I'm glad I never have clouded my children's minds with such superstitions. You know: find a penny, a four leaf clover, a horse shoe, and my favorite... the appendage of a leporidae (a rabbit's foot) and you will have good luck.

I actually owned a couple of rabbits feet during my childhood. What a horrible thing to think about. What sadist came up with that one?

Bibles1Some 42 years ago I came to the realization that all thanks be to God. Now your god or devine being may not be the same as mine but I know who mine is without a doubt and there is a multitude of materials that help me discover more about Him every day. Even though I own volume upon volume of materials about him I really can learn all I need from just one book and I'm grateful for that.

Of course I am also grateful to many people (if you read my last post I'm extrememly grateful to and for Active Rainer Jerry Newman ). I'm also grateful for many organizations like the church I attend, The Red Cross, Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and many more as well. I'm grateful for many businesses including Active Rain (you did know this blog site is a business didn't you).

hishandIn the end it all comes down to my being greatful to the one being who's voice was a BIG BANG in a void. That voice spoke the universe into a perfect existance... not a chatoic mass of premortal slime that became the world we know today. Because I've taken the time to listen to his voice and to look at all he has made I know who I am talking to every single day when I lift my voice in gratitude towards the heavens.

I love this post - we all need to take a deep breath and go back to a faith based belief= life is so much better believing that there is a loving being who cares about us - call him/her/it what you will!

Hi Bob,
I'm glad I don't have to count on a rabbit's foot or finding a 4-leaf clover for my "luck". I'm not sure how people without Faith get through this crazy life.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - This is a beautiful blog post written the way I feel about my faith too.  My faith has been an integral part of who I am since the time I was a child. I am also glad I practice my faith since being a little girl and no matter how the world changes, my faith will never waiver. As far as Jerry Newman goes, who knew back when we started on ActiveRain there would be people like Jerry instrumental in your families life years later. All we have to do is look around and know, we are blessed. Bob, you did a great job expressing this here on ActiveRain.
