I also want to encourage you to call on the Ultimate Peace Officer, Jesus Christ, the One who took the bullet with your (my!) name on it at the cross, that you and I would in due course get to the ultimate retirement and rest – obtaining help, hope, and home in Him as He reminds us of the back-up He provides for us: “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)
May your Thanksgiving celebrations be filled with joy and thankfulness – and for those who will be working on the holiday while others celebrate, I pray yours is uneventful!
