Giving Thanks


In a country as blessed as ours is, we often take our wealth for granted. It's so easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves and what we have with what other people have. We feel that we need more when in reality we are blessed far beyond what we need or deserve. If we could just focus on how generous God has been with us, we would be so much more content. We have plenty to eat, we're safe, warm and dry and above all else we have the love and support of our family and friends. I hope that today people will take the time to focus on how much God has done for us and realize how rich we really are. As you meet to feast and watch football with family and friends, don't forget to give thanks to the Lord for all he has done for us. May the Lord give you and your family peace and happiness this holiday season and help you to focus on how blessed you truly are!
