God says You are Welcome

I have been saying thank you to God a lot lately. Last night "God says you are welcome" with this beautiful sunset.Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday.
It has been a very hard year and God has been good. My son was living in Hawaii and they
found out he had cancer. His brother saw him through 6 months of chemo and was
a great caregiver. I was here praying for my son but unable to be with him.
God is good, he preserved my son for me.
John flew in from Hawaii yesterday and late yesterday we decided
to go to town to pick up some last minute things for Thanksgiving.
As we were traveling from home to Smithfield we saw this wonderful tribute
of God's goodness and mercy and grace.

My son John Boyette took this picture of a sunset in Johnston County
as we were driving to Smithfield. What a miracle that statement is, that John is alive,
that he is here, that God is blessing us everyday even when we don't see His sunsets.
