If you are among those who have struggled the last few years in the aviation industry it may seem hard to give thanks. Lets take a minute to consider a few things.  If you are still in aviation after the hit the industry has taken, you should be giving thanks.  If you still have a job as a pilot or mechanic, you should be giving thanks.  If you still get up in the morning going to a “job” you love, you should be giving thanks.  The fact we still have a country where we have the freedom that we do, you should be giving thanks.  More importantly than any of these things, is the fact that God, the Creator of everything would send HIS Son here to die for our sins, and for that we can truly give thanks.  Psalm 118:1 – O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. (KJV)
