Thanksgiving Blessings

 

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

BE IN THE LIGHT

SHINE LIKE A “SON” FLOWER

Matthew 5:13-14 – “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[b] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
