Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for peace.

I don't always feel it, but it comes if I ask for it and I cultivate the environment for it.

That punk Satan tries to drive it away. Shamefully, I sometimes follow. The past few days I've tried to better recognize his efforts and I've been shocked at how often he tries...and even more shocked at how often he succeeds, not always in driving away peace, but in leading me to think about going down paths that will not end peacefully.

Jerk.

He is out there. He is actively pursuing me and my family.

I am so thankful to have access to peace during this war that I am determined to win.

What are you thankful for today?
