I'm Thankful to the Lord for What I Don't Have

On this day of Thanks, I'm most thankful to the Lord. And, I've realized that rather than be disappointed by what I think is missing, I'm thankful to Him for what's missing. Why?
Because I trust Him.

You see, when I was confirmed, my mom gave me a bible and in the front she wrote Proverbs 3:5-6:

Proverbs 3:5-6New International Version (NIV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

So, I trust the Lord, that although I am missing people today, I believe he's got it all taken care of and he knows what's best for me.

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

 And, I'm thankful for what  (and who) I do have!
