Happy Thanksgiving from the Bagdanovs - Wholly Rollin!
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever." Psalm 107:1
Especially thankful this season as we reflect on all we've done, seen, experienced, grown in and lived. We give thanks! He truly is good proving that His love for us endures forever. From the rough start and times we said we were quitting to seeing His providential hand in guiding us even where to stay - locations that we thought were out of the way that turned out to be perfect. We've been elated, awed and humbled by His creation and we've been weary, worried and just plain tired. But through it all we've been together and encouraged by friends and family that we've seen and heard from along the way that have kept the "wind in our sails" and helped us move it down the road...
So with that said, our last leg into California has proved to be the "icing on the cake", in a sense, as we experienced, yet again, breathtaking views and vistas that we believe are just a foretaste of eternity. From Shasta, to Sacramento, Lake Tahoe (and even Carson City Nevada!), to San Francisco, Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel, Big Sur and Santa Barbara - we've been California Dreamin'.
"I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds." Psalm 9:1
"Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name." Psalm 100:4
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits" Psalm 103:2
"And now we thank you, Our God, and praise your glorious name." 1 Chronicles 29:13
"Saying, Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen!" Revelation 7:12
"Sing praises to the Lord, O you His saints, and give thanks to His holy name." Psalm 30:4
And so we "sing praises to the Lord" as He has sustained us thus far and got us to Huntington Beach, CA for Thanksgiving and Christmas. His provision is unfathomable from a place to park the rig, a place to stay for the next month plus. Blessed with family who has used their resources and have sacrificed for us with time and space. We give thanks to Your holy name, O Lord!
Happy Thanksgiving friends of Wholly Rollin 2020! Keep us in your prayers as we continue to process next steps for us as a family and direction of where the Lord wants us next. Our prayer for you this holiday is that you remember God's goodness and that His steadfast love endures forever; that your faith would be strengthened knowing no matter what the future may hold that you would shout for joy and that our lives would bring glory to God by the words of our mouth and the mediations of our heart and that we would bless His name.
See you on the road!
