Be thankful for God’s many blessings, and don’t forget the farmer

By Gene Hall

Our nation is truly blessed.

Our economy is the best in the world. Our form of government, not perfect, is second to none. Our unfettered spirit carries us through conflict and strife. And we have the security of a plentiful food supply.

This abundance of food isn’t an accident. Consider the sweat, the risk, the hardship, care and long hours worked to deliver it to your table.

As my family prepares for this season of Thanksgiving, I’ll thank God first for life and health. I’ll ask him to bless my wife, children and those wonderful creatures called grandkids. I’ll give thanks for our country and ask God to guide the hands of our leaders.

I’ll ask a special blessing for those few men and women God has chosen to work the land. Those who provide our nation a safe and abundant variety of food that is truly amazing.

As we move into this holiday season, be thankful for God’s many blessings. And don’t forget the farmer.
