Happy Thanksgiving 2019

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking in from California. We have had an excellent week with our friends in Fresno and Hanford. Two great revivals and fantastic fellowship with people that we love very much. 

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day and I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. It is hard to believe that it is already time for Thanksgiving this year. 2019 has been a year full of twists and turns, but I am thankful to say that I have survived this far by God’s grace. 

Life can be overwhelming and recently I have had a few times where all I could do was pray for strength to make it through. My God always strengthens me and holds me. I definitely have a lot of things for which to be thankful! When I have stopped to be intentionally thankful it helps brighten my perspective on life. 

One of the things that I am extra thankful for is that our home on wheels is working as it should. Right now I am sitting in the bus in California and earlier in the year we wondered if the BoggsMobile would ever roll again. 

We overcame 2 major bus breakdowns by God's grace and help. Now months later we have safely traveled thousands of miles. The bus problems are a big part of my memories of 2019. Through that unexpected tough patch, the Lord reminded me of His provision, protection and guidance at all times. I have always been thankful for safe and trouble free travel days, but now I am even more thankful. 

I am thankful that I have my family! My parents are my support system and I am so thankful for their love, help and care. 

I am so thankful that we have not had to face any major health issues. I know that is a huge blessing! I do not want to take good health for granted. 

We are blessed with wonderful friends!  I am amazed when I sit back and think about all our fabulous friends. I am immensely grateful for the precious gift of friendship! My friends have helped me through life. 

The BoggsMobile, my family, good health and friends are just a few of the things that I have been really thankful for recently. Praise God for His wonderful goodness to me.

What are somethings that you are thankful for? 

Thanks for reading today. I hope that you have a great weekend and holiday week.
