Happy Thanksforgiving

It’s that time of year again, when we set aside a day to remember all the things that we are thankful for. I am thankful for my health, my family, a roof over our head, my wonderful precious friend who encouraged me to take a step of faith and begin this blog. I am also thankful for the visitors and my followers, may you be blessed beyond measure. Mostly and most important of all, I am thankful for God’s mercy and grace that He extends every day. For Jesus who chose to give up everything and come to earth as a baby; grow to be a man and die on the cross that we might have eternal life with the Father.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect not only on the things we are thankful for but also to extend forgiveness to those who may have hurt us. Forgiving isn’t always easy to do. The hurt may run to deep to think you could ever forgive. However, forgiving others isn’t for their benefit but for yours. It sets you free from the hurt you experienced giving you a cleansing breath of fresh air that comes from forgiveness. You know, like when you’re in the mountains, and you take that deep breath of clean air that’s so refreshing and sweet. As you sit around the table today enjoying family and fellowship be thankful for the good things and take a minute to reflect if there is someone you may need to forgive. Big or small when you hurt and it stays with you then it’s time to take it out and examine if it’s worth holding on to the hurt.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Thanksgiving and God bless!
