I love All-Saints Day.
It's when we pause to reflect on all the believers who have gone to heaven to be with Jesus before us, a day of triumph. This world is not our home. Death is not the end; it's the beginning of life everlasting. It is when we get to leave behind the cares of this world, and live forever with our beautiful Lord and Savior, Jesus. Problem free, pain free, just plain free for all eternity.
November is when we begin to think about these things, and thinking about such things makes us grateful, thankful. November is a month of thankfulness, culminating in a great feast where we celebrate the provision of God through this year's bountiful harvest.
Today was a glorious sun-soaked autumn day, and warm. The temperature climbed into the upper 70s. I didn't need a coat. I wore a sweater, but I barely needed that!
There were about 3,000,000 things to be thankful for today, but I'm just going to dwell on the day itself. I'm thankful that today was a beautiful day!
