Giving Thanks

As Southern Gospel fans, we have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Two of my favorite groups, the Perrys and the Mark Trammell Trio, went through some tough times earlier this year, when each group lost its lead singer. Yet they were both able to rebuild to the point of being better than they were before.

We can all give thanks that Roger Bennett’s cell transplant is going well so far.

And though we mourn that they are no longer with us, we can rejoice with Anthony Burger and Doug Riley as they celebrate their first Thanksgiving in Heaven.

In closing, let me quote the Happy Thanksgiving email that the Mark Trammell Trio sent out to their email list:

As we gather with our families to give thanks this week, one of the things to be most thankful for is you.  This has been our best year, so far.  We know it is first because of the blessings of God, but you being there has been a great part of that blessing.  Thank you for your love and support for this ministry.

We Love YOU!

In Jesus,
Mark, Eric, Dustin, Steve, our families and support team

I like the way they put that.

Happy Thanksgiving!
