THOUGHTS OF THANKS
---“Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.”
It’s been a tough year and a tough economy for many…
Cost of living increases.
Major retailers, businesses and restaurants closing down forever.
All contributing to a climate of doubt, fear, stress and uncertainty;
no matter where on this globe you hang your hat and call “home”.
Add to this the untimely deaths of entertainment legends and celebrities like Prince, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder, and Herb Kent (to name a few).
In the midst of the madness, there's STILL so much to be thankful for.
So many blessings to embrace.
In fact, a recent study conducted by Baylor University, reports that individuals that found more meaning in their lives felt a greater sense of satisfaction, and that having gratitude yields more happiness than "possessing" things.
Consider this during the Thanksgiving holiday season: Even though your bank account may not be “full” no doubt your stomach will be.
Yet countless Americans will be without a turkey dinner, or a table to put their feet under to call home, or the love of family, or good health that allows them to function independently.
Can I get an Amen?
So this year, why not focus less on all the things you don’t have, and focus more on God’s abundant blessings?
Or devote that same energy to making things better for others.
One person really can make a difference.
THINGS YOU CAN DO…
Donate to a Domestic Violence charity.
Volunteer at a food pantry or soup kitchen.
Start a coat drive in your area.
Mentor to the youth in your community that may need guidance.
Visit the elderly and sick in nursing homes.
Become active in your church.
It’s never too late to make a new start. To live in gratitude.
To enrich others.
Remember, no matter who runs this country, we should always be mindful of
“Who is the head of our lives.”
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
From our door to yours…
We wish you a blessed, bountiful, beautiful, safe Thanksgiving.
We are “thankful” for your ongoing support and prayers.
