Happy Thanksgiving!

As you and your family and friends gather together on Thursday to celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope that you will take a moment during the day to reflect on the many things you have to be thankful for.  

Cultivate a spirit of thankfulness:  Certainly, in this world, we all experience a combination of good things and tragic and difficult circumstances.  But it's a good practice, even in the midst of challenges, to cultivate a spirit of gratefulness and thankfulness for the many blessings of our lives - both the large and consequential things and the little things that enrich our lives.  It's good to train our hearts toward thankfulness not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day. I know some people who write down every day the things for which they are thankful.  Such a practice can help us cope more effectively with the difficult things that we face in life.

Happy Thanksgiving!  I want to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, full of family and friends, a thankful spirit, and an opportunity for worship.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Break from blog:  Because many of us will be taking time off from work this week, this will be the only blog I write this week.  I will resume the blog the week of December 1st.
