On this ultimate Thankful Thursday I would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. It is my hope that you have spent the last month focusing on all the blessings in your life, large and small.
We only have five more days for our month of thankfulness. Has it been an eye-opening journey for you? Has it been difficult or easy to find something each day for which you can be thankful? Looking around with an attitude of gratitude can make a huge difference in how we view the world around us. It is my desire that you carry your month of being thankful with you for many days beyond this particular November.
My prayer is that in looking at how rich your life is you will extend yourself toward others who do not live in the same abundance you do. You merely have to open your hearts and minds to the opportunities to help another. There are broken, hurting, lost, hungry and cold souls in your community, perhaps even in your neighborhoods. Look near and look far. Don't simply look and shake your head and think you cannot facilitate change. You can. One person can make a difference. As Max Lucado says, "No one can do everything, but everyone can do something".
As we step into the holiday season, keep your heart of thankfulness open to the possibilities of how you can make a difference in the life of someone else.
You are blessed --- pass it on.
In His Peace --
