What Are You Thankful For?
“Studies have shown that people who practice gratitude report experiencing more joy, express more compassion and generosity, and are even less likely to get sick.”
How do we nurture a spirit of thankfulness in our busy schedules? I find that being purposeful helps me to be vigilant in such a high stake action.
Happy Thanksgiving to All!
I received this prayer Shaw from a little girl who is five. She came in swinging her pig tails and carrying a large bag.
I said what a beautiful bag!!!
She said, “It is for you”, at which I said, “For Me!!!”
She said, It is for your surgery. I was puzzled.
Then I thought she probably over heard someone ask me about the eye surgery. (Cataract surgery x2)
Her mother said she without her asking her went to the prayer Shaw ladies and asked them to make this prayer shaw for me.
I was humbled by such a beautiful gift. I’m running a little late on pray this am so now will put it on and pray.
I had to share this beautiful story of her gift.
Prayer from my morning devotional…I like it…join me in prayer if you like it🙏🏻
“Lord, As I advance through the stages of life, help me grow in the wisdom without losing the joy, play, imagination, and childlike trust you gifted me with in my early years.”
“The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded
than the shouts of a ruler of fools.” Ecclesiastes 9:17
Our lesson on Judges last week has been delayed due to a technical issue. Please continue to pray for Pastor Reggie’s healing. Sure nice to hear from he and Tammy.
The spirit of God has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
