I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, (Philemon 1:4 NIV)
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope we take time to be mindful of all of the manifold blessings we have received throughout the year. You may have experienced difficulties, some setbacks, disappointments and you may be one of so many who have lost loved ones during this past year. I know for you it can be hard to ‘give thanks’ when you feel empty, lost, hurt and bound. I’ve been there too, many times. I want to say to you, “It’s all right.” You may not see the silver lining right now. Your view may be clouded because of tears and sadness, but one day, you will rise again. One day you will be able to say ‘thank you’ again. One day you will be restored and one day things will look better because they will be better.
To all the others who are hustling and bustling preparing for this Thanksgiving and for the Christmas season, remember to count your many blessings. Remember to be kind to others, to think of others and to be sensitive, and compassionate.
Lastly, I personally want to thank each one of you who support me and love me and accept me and nurture me and push me and believe in me and stand be me. I know this isn’t editorially correct, but give me a pass today please (lol). Anyway, I love you and I am so grateful and thankful for YOU!
