The holiday season has begun, at least in my household. With all the excitement of preparing the Thanksgiving feast, I am quietly reminded of last years Thanksgiving.
The holidays seem to magnify loss. Losing my Mum-in-Law, in June, put another hole in my heart. My parents have resided with Jesus for some time now, and although I am comforted in that knowlege, my human heart aches.
Many of my friends and acquintences have also suffered loss of one kind or another. Downcast and hopeless, perhaps wondering where is God? Unfortunately, I have no words of my own to comfort heavy hearts , so I offer these words of Jesus….
“6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
Jesus teaches us that all of our questions, doubts and fears can be found in Him alone. The daily blessings that impact our lives often go unnoticed in the hustle and bustly of life. Take a quiet moment tomorrow and give thanks for all that you do have, for the memories of shared times with family and friends. Tell your family you love them, tell you friends too!
From our home to yours, we pray that love and abundance surrounds you and yours. Happy Thanksgiving
