Happy Thanksgiving

“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.”  – Meister Eckhart

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.” – Abraham Lincoln

While we are thankful for:

  • Our lives
  • Family and Friends
  • Love and Blessings
  • Joyful hearts and good health
  • Staying true to ourselves
  • Peace of mind and living in a War free country
  • Mistakes and Failures (“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at His feet.”  – Mahatma Gandhi)
  • Pain and Sorrow (“To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.” – Isaiah 61:3 (NLT))
  • God’s Unfailing Love

We are constantly reminded that they are people out there who have little to nothing and who fight just to exist. Our prayers are with them, always.

 “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
