November Days Of Gratitude Day 4

Not my picture, this is the only link I have for it.
Day 4- I have so many things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful that we have religious freedom. That we are free to worship, to own and read bibles, to meet at church as often as we please. Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. So often we forget that our brothers and sisters are not as fortunate as we are. They know true persecution, not what we claim as persecution here. "Today a co worker called me a Jesus Freak/Bible Thumper." That my friends, is not persecution. Accounts in books like Foxe's Book of Martyrs. That is persecution. The church was built on the blood of martyrs. I am so very blessed here. I can't forget that. I especially can't forget to pray for my brothers and sisters.
Closer to home I'm so thankful that we got to have dinner, or a meal of epic proportions, with a dear friend we haven't seen in almost three years!
