To Whom are You Thankful?
By Paul Hayden
November 19, 2018
"Happy" Thanksgiving! Indeed, the more thankful we are, it is quite likely the happier we will be. Ultimately, our thanks is directed to God who created all things, and continues to sustain and provide for us. In and only in God is there life - all else is just matter. Life is spirit - the spirit is life. For this opportunity that we call life, we give thanks to the God of the universe, who is also the God of each one of us, who loves each one of us more than we can possibly ever fully know. May you come to know God's love better during this holiday season.
Paul Hayden is a Christian believer, and an American patriot, necessarily in that order. He is a student of the Bible, and is avidly interested in our role in the context of history, as understood through the heart and eyes of faith. Paul has lived and traveled somewhat widely, and now lives in the heartland of the U.S. (central Illinois), with his wife Donna - they have five grown children. Since December of 2016, he serves as the Editor-in-Chief of www.ConservativeTruth.org.
"I was raised by a Christian minister, Kenneth Hayden, until his death when I was 10. Then my mom married a farmer. So I was raised in a very down-to-earth home. My faith has grown through the years, but both in conjunction with the institutional church and through small groups and individuals, including books as well as group settings, where deep, sincere faith is shared that aligns with Biblical truth."
