This was written this past week by a nine-year girl to celebrate American Thanksgiving. What a lovely testimony. Unfortunately, my format does not allow me to reproduce it in her lovely handwriting.
“Thanksgiving reminds me of all the people and things I’m thankful for. I appreciate Jesus, my family, and my pets.
I’m especially thankful for Jesus because He gave me hope that when I die, I’m not dead, but I will be in heaven with Him and my family. If you believe in Him with all of your heart, you will be in heaven too.
I also appreciate my family because they light my path wherever they are. They help me understand things I need to learn and understand why they love me and how they would like me to act.
Finally, I’m grateful for my pets because when I am lonely, I cuddle one of them to feel better. I love them both equally so much.
As I enjoy this holiday season, I realize that I have many reasons to be thankful. Jesus, my family, and my pets are just a few of the blessings in my life!”
