A Time of Thanksgiving!



November rolled in rather quickly, if you ask me.....

I love Autumn and this season. The beauty of God's landscape and the reminder that change comes .

All of us need change. A change in our attitude towards others, especially during this season of Thanksgiving.

As you are reminded of all your blessings and the many things you have to Thank God for do you think about others that you may know that aren't as fortunate as you? When you go to the grocery store to get your "fixins" for your wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with your family do you think of others who may be alone  or have no money for a delicious meal? They sell gift cards at the counter, maybe we could pick one up and offer it to someone we know may not be able to afford a turkey. Maybe we could all reach out of our comfort zone and invite the lonely person who lives across the street to join in our family celebration. The thought of someone we don't know joining us for a "family meal" may make us uncomfortable......maybe another time right? This holiday season is suppose to be about time spent with family......

Remember, we are ALL a part of God's family and he want's us to share his love with others, no matter the season. 

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. No pressure to buy gifts or decorate. Just a time of Prasising God for his goodness and mercy. A time to reflect on our many blessings and to share God's love unconditionally with others. To bad we don't make every day a Day of Thanksgiving instaed of just celebrating on the fourth Thursday of November, once a year!

Luke 14: 13,14

"But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although nthey cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous"
