Thanksgiving provides a much needed occasion to take stock of things in a really good way. This is a time to count up your blessings, think about the past year and be grateful for all the good things that may have gone unnoticed. Even if it seems like the list is short, there are many ways to recognize the good around you. Thanksgiving sharpens our vision. It signifies turning away from a focus on whatever bothers you, to zeroing in on the good that has always surrounded you, even if you've never looked there before.
This Thursday, Thanksgiving day, we will have a special church service on the subject of giving thanks. We hope you can come and join us!
