Thankfulness

Dear Blog Readers,

If you are on Facebook and we are not friends, please look me up. I have a Wall there, and today I put up a fan page.

The earthquake in Haiti has me grieved and praying. I went to the store this afternoon, and looking around at the shelves fully stock, all the fresh produce, and the rows of bottled water, I paused. I have so much. I'm buying food for my family, I thought to myself. We are not going without. We are not suffering. Thank, God.


In these difficult days we live in, let's count our blessings, hug our family members and friends, do something kind for a neighbor. Above all, thank God for every breathe we take, for each bit of food and each swallow of water that passes our lips, for the clothes on our backs and the roofs over our heads.



'For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' 
Matthew 25: 35-36
