Thanksgiving 2010 With The Family

It was good to go home for a few days and see the family.  It was especially nice to see my nephew Bentley, who is quickly growing up.  I took a few more pictures of him that I posted up on his website if you want to see the full set.

Happy Thanksgiving: Rejoice in the Present

An ancient Chinese proverb goes, “yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future and today is a present.”  I think that quote sums up so much in just a few words.  There is nothing to be gained in living in the past and even with all the planning in the world we are never sure about the future.  Live in the moment.  If the advice from the Chinese isn’t enough here is another quote, actually my favorite line from the Bible: This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24 Life simply isn’t worth getting upset or angry about many things as they are out of our control and we can only control one thing, the present. So all this is a little bit of a backward way of asking what are you thankful...
