I just want to thank you all for your prayer support this past year. We have needed it and the hurting souls we care for in biblical counseling sessions need it, too.

I love November primarily for the reason of Thanksgiving. It gives me an excuse to “boast about the Lord” and to share the Gospel.

After hearing a Christmas song on the radio in early November, my 7 year old daughter asked me, “Why don’t they play Thanksgiving songs on the radio, Daddy, like they do Christmas songs?”

I paused to think before responding with this, “We do sing thankful songs in church on Sundays to God all of the time, but the radio doesn’t play those songs.” What else could I say? My daughter knows very little about the fallen world of unbelief that exists outside our home. She thinks everyone should be thankful to God…and she’s right.

Wouldn’t it be nice to hear Thanksgiving songs on the radio each year in October and November? Let’s start a new tradition.
