Church was exceptionally uplifting for me yesterday.
Being the Sunday before Thanksgiving,
the talks were centered on gratitude -and I realized
something I've been forgetting in this Thirty Days of Thanks.
I don't know how it was so easy for me to overlook -and
honestly it humbled me.
I was reminded that the things that
bless our lives come from God.
I felt his love for me, and his continual concern
for my happiness and well-being.
Then I remembered this quote:
"Human vanity can best be served by a reminder that,
whatever his accomplishments, his sophistication, his
artistic pretension, man owes his very existence to a
six inch layer of top soil -and the fact that it rains."
Later, in Sunday School, we were discussing
the tough economic times that are upon us.
And one man reminded us all that
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh...
In this life we will have trials, they are here to help us.
Again, I felt so blessed.
He who cloths the lillies and feeds the sparrows
certainly knows me and takes care of me
and will continue to do so.
It was a good day,
and I am grateful for a
perfect Father in Heaven
who knows exactly what I need.
He is the Master teacher and has
a specific plan for my life.
I will follow him in faith.
I would like to wish
everyone a happy and healthy
Love to you all!
