Thoughts for November 2016

November is a season of Thanksgiving and preparation for the holidays. It is good to give thanks to the Lord. An old hymn encourages us: “Count your blessings; name them one by one; and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.” We have so much for which to be thankful: families, friends, food, clothing, shelter, education, and more.

This year, Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday, November 24th. Where will you celebrate the holiday for giving thanks this year? Who will join you? Who will be missing from the table? We can give thanks with a grateful heart for all that we have received from the Lord. What a wonderful blessing it is to awaken each morning and to see another day. Tell someone you are thankful for their presence in your life or take time to send a card or a note. Enjoy giving thanks!
