How can I make a difference in a broken world?

Stained Glass Cross


Whenever I think of Thanksgiving and Gratitude, I think of Paul and his letter to his friends in the Church at Philippi. Paul ties joy and thanksgiving together. It's as if joy produces thanksgiving and thanksgiving one perpetual circle. Paul is in prison facing a death sentence and yet he can rejoice and invite others to rejoice as well. He urges them to search for blessings...there are always some, and give thanks for them. The grateful heart is a happy heart.

Of course, we rejoice IN THE LORD. When the Lord is with us, as He always is, we always have something wonderful for which to be grateful.


"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His steadfast love endures forever"

Psalm 106:1
