Next Thursday is a day we celebrate as Thanksgiving Day. It is a day for us to remind ourselves of the many blessings we have received from our God.
God has blessed our church in mighty ways this pass year. He provided all the funding needed to finish the building remodel. He opened doors for us to receive a grant and a tax refund. He blessed us with an outstanding one day of sacrificial giving. In addition, He has brought us together in greater unity with our sister churches the Good Shepherd Church and The Filipino International Christian Fellowship.
On a personal note, He has blessed our family with cute granddaughter. Raetta and I both have recovered from COVID -19 with any major issues. He has blessed my family in so many ways this year.
With all that God does for us, we should be grateful daily. I guess that's why Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5, "In all things give thanks to God..." In between eating turkey, watching football or shopping; take a moment and thank the Lord for the blessings you have received. Be grateful this Thanksgiving!
Onward and Upward!
