When Thanksgiving Day arrives there is anticipated rush and scurry. Before the day begins and you are sitting around the kitchen table in your night clothes, sipping your coffee, read these words to begin the thankful day:

A Thanksgiving Blessing

by Joyce Rupp

May and abundance of gratitude burst forth As you reflect upon what you have received.

May thanksgiving overflow in your heart, And often be proclaimed in your prayer.

May you gather around the table of your heart The ardent faithfulness, kindles, and goodness of each person who is true to you.

May the harvest of your good actions Bring forth plentiful fruit each day.

May you discover a cache of hidden wisdom Among the people and events
That have brought you distress and sorrow.
May your basket of blessings surprise you With its rich diversity of gifts
And its opportunities for growth.

May all that nourishes and resources your life Bring you daily satisfaction and renewed hope.

May you slow your hurried pace of life so you can be aware of, and enjoy, What you too easily take for granted.
May you always be open, willing,
And ready to share your blessings with others.

May you never forget the Generous One Who loves you lavishly and unconditionally.

May God add abundant blessings to your day. I am so very thankful to have such a wonderful faith family as part of my family’s life.

Happy Thanksgiving With Gratitude,
Pastor Sara and Amy ~Meredith, Alex and Samuel
