"Let thankfulness rule in your heart. As you thank Me for blessings in your life, a marvelous thing happens...scales fall off your eyes, enabling you to see more and more of My glorious riches... A life of praise and thankfulness becomes a life filled with miracles... This is how I created you to live."(346)
Those "scales that fall off our eyes" are often there because we are reacting to a limited frame of reference that restricts a greater, fuller understanding. Much like having little ones in our home during Thanksgiving, and the many times we must explain why... sharing a toy, waiting your turn, eating "good" food before dessert, taking a nap, brushing your teeth, wearing your shoes outside, letting mommy fix your hair or daddy carry your plate... are all so important...we need to know that our Heavenly Father has a perspective without "scales" and without limitations. His insight changes our perspective much like a parent's insight can change a child's perspective.
It's always been a great Thanksgiving when we've got a house to clean up and lots of laundry to do! It's the tangible prove... Lots of grandkids, grand friends and grand memories are all ours... We're blessed, in a grand way!
Keeping a Thanksgiving perspective...dmc :)
