Thankful Sheep

This morning The Sheep were wandering around the neighborhood and taking in the sunrise and the fog in the distance. As They were walking They started thinking about all the things for which They are grateful... Family, Friends, Adventures, a warm place to sleep, enough to eat, etc.

The more They thought, the more They wondered... Who gets all this gratitude? Who are They thanking? Is gratitude worth the effort if no one receives it?

Some people want to thank "The Universe", some people want to thank "Mother Nature", and those are okay. But the more The Sheep thought the more They realized that those both fall short. When you break down the Latin for the word universe it literally translates to "One Word" Well, that begs the question, "Who spoke that word?" Mother Nature... that's a nice idea. Everyone needs a mother, but if everything is born from Mother Nature, who is the Father?

Hmmm, Father... That really got Them thinking. That reminded Them of something that They had heard before " Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above. These gifts come down from the Father, the creator of the heavenly lights, in whose character there is no change at all." A good Father, Whose character never changes - predictable, kind, mercifully, giving all of these good gifts. Now this is a good place to aim Their gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
