As I sit here on the eve of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of how magnificent our God is and how abundantly He shows His love and grace to us, even when we try to be lord of our own lives.

This week past has been a reminder to me that the more I try to control the direction of my life, the less smoothly it seems to flow.  Since embarking on this dedicated journey of faith to pursue a ministry in music, I have actively tried to relinquish control to God.  Yet, even so, I've found I try to hang on to just a token few things.  And, let me tell you, they've not gone as I've planned. Much advance planning and fretting have gone into the release of the CD.  Even still, the behind-the-scenes view has been fraught with obstacles and circumstances I thought I had planned around.  In the midst of being overwhelmed in frustration, and while stuck in Austin gridlock, I had an enlightened moment: the things in my life that have caused me the most angst and created the greatest amount of stress over the last few months have been man-made.  More precisely, Jennifer-made.  When I'm pushing the agenda, I've got everything to lose.  Failure to meet a scheduled deadline creates disappointment - to me.  In other words, I've failed myself.  But when I let go of the control and recognize that ALL THINGS are in God, and therefore God is in all things, the meter stops ticking, the deadlines become lifelines, and I find I can exhale.

So as I reflect on all that I have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season, it really boils down to one point.  I am ever grateful to be a child of God.

Wishing you much joy and bounty in our Lord and Savior.

Yours in Christ,
