God With Skin On

Today is Thanksgiving, and I want my readers to know that I am thankful for a God with skin on. This may seem like an absurd concept, and I am not trying to be disrespectful. As many of you know, our family has had a rough year (you can read my Sunday, August 30, 2009 post), and I was pretty much crying out for God to prove He has skin... that He truly cares for my family now, with what we are going through. Well, within a few hours of that posting I had an answer... and since that day I've had my eyes opened even more.

Sometimes we just need to see Him in our lives. Working out the minute details... I am a person who likes having a plan. I live my life with lists. I've learned to minimize those lists, so I don't constantly live under guilt because I don't ever complete them. However, I know I give God my "Honey-Do" list... and expect Him to complete the tasks with my deadline expectations. He's showing me that He is the only One who can set and meet deadlines.

Today, I want to thank God for allowing me to see Him (again)...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
