Thankful for You

Pastoral Reflections

Thanksgiving Day, Nov 2019
God blesses us with uncountable gifts for which we are thankful.
This Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for each one of the TLC family.
 
I am thankful for the warmth of this family
And for the big hearts of these saints.
I am thankful for burdens shared together
And for prayers offered by one for the other.
 
I am thankful for each volunteer that came out
And for the partner who picked up the slack at home.
I am thankful for the generosity of the people
And the gift of those who strive to manage it well.
 
I am thankful for the numerous gifts expressed here
And for our vulnerability in authentic relationships.
I am thankful for each leader and ministry
And the fruits borne, with or without their knowledge.
 
I am thankful for times of laughter and good humor
And for the love of God’s people in days of sorrow.
And, oh yes, I am still thankful for a new boiler
But, boilers don’t get the last word, therefore…
 
I am thankful for God’s gift of His Son to us
And for His Spirit among us.
Happy Thanksgiving to you
From the depths of my heart.
