Hope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving Day. My thoughts and prayers are going out to those who, because of this very unusual and difficult year, can’t be with their family and friends on this day. My hope is that sometime next year we will be able to enjoy each others company again without the physical distancing.
Things that can help bring us happiness are remembering to give thanks for those things you have, because there are others who have less. Serving others as your abilities and circumstances allow, a donation (money or good used clothing) to a homeless shelter, helping a neighbor shovel the snow from their walk, uplifting service can be something as simple as a smile, a kind word or compliment. It helps us to be more grateful for all the Lord has blessed us with as we serve each other.
John 13:34 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if you have love one to another.”
