I know it doesn't seem that way with Western Civilization circling the drain and all, but I know that I still have so much to be thankful for.
For one thing, everyone here is healthy, and that's a whole lot. God has always provided for our needs without fail.

For another, I'm thankful that the Lord Jesus shed his Blood for me and you so that we can live without fear of anything this ugly, hell-bound world has to frighten me with. In fact, Jesus said "fear not" more than anything in the New Testament. Fear is the weapon of the enemy and he uses it a lot to get us to do things we wouldn't ordinarily do. When we only fear God and no other, his weapon becomes useless and tyrannies fall. This is why the church was hunted down during the French Revolution, Communism, and in Islamic Theocracies.
Here's a link to a great piece of a Spurgeon sermon entitled Between the Two Appearings:
We are living in the age which lies between the two blazing beacons of the Divine appearings and we are called to hasten from one to the other.We're so very close to the second beacon and everything is going as the Book predicted it would. Truly thankful for that Book, it's a true blessing to those of us living in these times.
