January 17--giving thanks for 3 more things
I am thankful today for getting free VIP tickets to the SC Presidential Debate last night. I am thankful for these aspects:
First of all, because it was just plain ole fun to be there with a crowd of people who were energetic.
Secondly, because it was so interesting to see these candidates live. We sat about 6 rows back and got a good view.
Thirdly, because I got to see some Fox News people and some sat right across from us.
Fourthly, a little girl --about 7 or so sang the National Anthem and she had an outstanding amazing voice. She sat behind us and she was able to get all the candidates signatures. (No, I didn't go up and get signatures, lol).
I love debates and it was a blast to be there in person. My hands actually got sore from the clapping! It was just a fun date night for my hubby and myself. Now, I have to decide who to vote for this week in our SC primary ;-) But I am reminded of this quote from St. Antony,
"For the whole of earth is a very little thing compared with the whole of heaven".
Still---I am thankful that these little gifts are a reflection of grander gifts that we look forward to as we enter into his fullness.
