All this…

I remember reading somewhere once, about an old woman who was very poor. She had only a crust of bread and a cup of water for her dinner. And yet, after she had bowed her head in thanks to God, she raised her tear-filled eyes to heaven and exclaimed, “All this…and Christ besides!”

As autumn arrives and we begin looking toward a season of thanksgiving once again, let that be the cry of praise from our hearts. We have been given all this…and Christ besides! No blessing is too small to give thanks for. No circumstance is so dire that the Lord and His mercies cannot be found therein. We have been given the greatest treasure imaginable–the hope of heaven. Give thanks with a grateful heart.
