There is nothing like a delicious bowl of soup, stew or chili on a cold day.  It’s not really cold here today but it’s overcast and cool and looks like the beginning of the Autumn season,  so I was thinking of a good vegetable/beef stew.  Yum!  Just sounds good about now.  Of course you can’t have stew, soup or chili without a BIG slice of hot cornbread, fresh from the oven, with a big dollop of butter.  Have a good day and cook up something yummy.  I think I will.  🙂

Can you believe we are already in Thanksgiving Week? 

There are many things to be thankful for.  I hope all of you have a blessed week.

 

Be Thankful
Be thankful that you don’t already have
everything you desire.  If you did,
what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Today was a great day!  Our church gave away 200 turkeys for Thanksgiving.  People came to the church this year and it was awesome. Several of them wanted to see the inside of the church so we gave them tours. Now there is well over 250 people in Hollister that know where our church is.  They were all very thankful for the kindness shown to them.  There was food, music and testimonies.  Everyone really enjoyed themselves.  Tena Valenti, the outreach team and the church family did a superb job this year and put this one over the top.

 Lord thank You for another day

Within this life of mine…

Give me the stength to live it well

Whatever I may find.

Bestow from Your abundance

Whatever I may lack…

To use the hours wisely

For I cannot have them back.

Lord thank you for another day

In which to make amends…

For little slights or petty words

Inflicted on my friends.

For somethimes losing patience

With problems that I find…

For seeing faults in other lives

 But not the ones in mine.

Lord thank You for another chance

In which to try to be…

A little more deserving

Of the gifts You’ve given me.

For yesterday is over

And tomorrow’s far away…

And I remain committed

To the good I do today!
