Yesterday was absolutely wonderful. Though I am half a world away from my family, I managed to spend time with them on Skype, and it was a joy seeing everyone for the first time in months in some cases. I felt that there was much to be thankful for.
Rich Lowry of National Review continues on that theme. Without gratitude, indeed, we have nothing.
To my family, friends and readers, I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. It is my hope to celebrate with everyone, at least in spirit.
As we spend this day giving thanks for the blessings we all have had this past year, spend a bit of time contemplating Psalm 100 today:
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
May you all eat well!

I wrote on politics for several years from a center-Conservative viewpoint, but these days, because of my travels, I don’t pay so much attention to political matters in the United States. I have been residing in Skopje, Macedonia since May 2011, and will be basing operations out of Naples, Italy starting in February 2012.
