Columnist thanks readers for their “thankfulness” responses


A few weeks ago, I wrote an article in this column about thanksgiving. I listed 16 things I was thankful for and asked our readers to add to the list and send it to me.

I want to express many thanks to all of you who responded. I would like to share just a few of those responses today.

Our good friend, David S. Shmucker, from Garrettsville, Ohio, writes to us and he has listed 51 things he is thankful for. He also states that there are many more he could have listed. He tells us that he really enjoys Farm and Dairy. Thank you, David, for your list of thanksgiving.

Judith L. Cooper writes to us with a list of 18 things she is thankful for. One of her thanks is that she is thankful she lives in the United States of America and can worship God at all times. Judith is from East Rochester, Ohio. She also says she is thankful for Farm and Dairy. Thanks again, Judith.

Mike Krakora, from Girard, Ohio, writes to us with his list of 32 things he is thankful for. Mike says he is thankful for the air he breathes, his friends, his neighbors, his doctor, his pastor, his church, and for Jesus who always takes us back when we go astray. He lists many more. I wish to say “thank you” to Mike and all the others who took the time to write to me and share your thanksgiving blessings with us.

Let every day of your life be a day of thanksgiving and praise to God. God is so good to us. He supplies all our needs.

If you made a list, don’t stop adding to it. Let it grow, and the more it grows, the more grateful you will be.
