This is truly the beginning of a thankful and giving season! It seems like people are so much nicer, more thankful and more giving to others during this time of year. My question is: Why can people not be like this all the other days of the year? God gives to us constantly. Should we not be willing to share what He gives to us? This Thanksgiving Day my husband, Tony, and I are going to be helping serve the homeless at the Samaritans Ministries. We decided this because we are blessed everyday with all God has given and continues to give. Even when Tony was out of a job and we were worried about bills and especially keeping our home, God provided. He continues to bless us with more than we deserve and our faith has grown much stronger. God continues to be faithful to us and we are thankful to have Him as our friend; always with us, always loving us and always meeting our needs.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
