I am also thankful that we STILL have the freedom in this country to pursue our hobby and even for you TURKEYS on this forum....Rich
Can't say it much better than that! Amen!

I'm so mindful this year of God's unmerited favor bestowed upon each one of us when we deserve nothing but immediate death for our sins against a Holy God and for his forgiveness of sins that was painfully paid for by Christ's sacrifice on the cross for each one of us. If you want to be truly thankful and know what true thankfulness is this season, Christ is knocking at the door of your heart...accept his forgiveness and let him in.

Re: HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What are you thankful for?

I'm very thankful for living in a free country where I was able to hear the Gospel and except that message. I'm thankful for my family, old, young, and recently passed away. I'm thankful for all the folks on this forum who have helped me directly and indirectly pursue my passion of extreme accuracy at long distances. I've deployed many times to the war over the last 7 years and I'm thankful to still be alive and at home for this Thanks Giving and Christmas. Thank you Lord.

Hi Rich - i was just a troll ;-) Whereabouts in the "Great UP of Michigan" did you live? It's b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l over Big Mac - there's a stretch of trail (through/past Grand Marais) between Sault Ste. Marie and Munising that's awesome for winter camping!

The largest city nearby was Cadillac - about 20mins. I'll be visiting there for Christmas - 1st time in over 2 years. Leaving in 14 days and a 'wake up'!!!

I grew up in Chippewa co. near a small town called Trout Lake. I went to high school in Rudyard which is about 15 or 20 miles SW of the Soo! I worked for the USFS until I transferred here in '75.......Rich

Im am truely thankfull that I had my family to support me, for my lawyers who worked hard and were very involved. Some of what people say about lawyers is true but there are some good ones out there still, mine took a personal interest and I could tell they believed in me and our cause. I am thankfull for my friends who stood by me, you can always find out who your real friends are when time times are tough and trying and mine stood by me through the worst. Having gone through this most difficult time as opened my eyes as to what is truely important and how lucky I am to have the things in my life that I had taken for granted. 9 months ago I was on the verge of losing everything and today I got the biggest part of me back.
wow brother i know exactly what you are talking about. Im about 3 months away from being done with my divorce and as of now am supposed to get custody of my 3yo little girl. Obviously thankful for that. lots this year:
-not dieing in a training accident in 600ft of water
-my lawyers also
-family
-getting into my jr year of my Batchelors degree
and first of all god showing me the path he wanted me to walk.
amen
looking forward to a little smoother year in 2011
