Quote for Thanksgiving Sunday

From In this Mountain, by Jan Karon
"In everything, give thanks. That's all. That's this morning's message.

"If you believe as I do that Scripture is the inspired Word of God, then we see this....as a loving command issued through the great apostle....[but] Just what is this everything business?

"It's the hook. It's the key. Everything is the word on which this whole powerful command stands and has its being."

"There'll be times when you wonder how you can possibly thank Him for something that turns your life upside down; certainly there will be such times for me. Let us, then, at times like these, give thanks on faith alone...obedient, trusting, hoping, believing."
