    DEAR DR. GRAHAM: It's been a bad year for me: My husband died, I've been in the hospital several times, our children seldom visit, etc. How can God expect me to be thankful? DEAR MRS. J.McL.: Don't think of thankfulness as an — Mrs. J.McL. obligation God demands of us. Think of it instead as an opportunity God gives us to pause and remember all the good things He has done for us. God knows what you've been going through, and He has never abandoned you. He loves you and has sustained you even when you weren't aware of it. I know he loves you because Jesus Christ was willing to go to the cross and give His life for you, so all your sins could be forgiven and you could be with Him in heaven forever. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.
