Happy Thanksgiving!

In the midst of this week - a week where the holiday season begins, where Thanksgiving turns into Christmas. Where we give thanks, and where we enter into the wonderful season of Advent ...

As we are caught up in the preparations and the excitement of the season - pausing, and remembering ...

Because of God's Greatest Gift to us, His gift of Jesus ...

Every day ... a new day of opportunity dawns 

Every day ... we can live and breathe in His Love

Every day ... our worries can be turned into prayers

Every day ... His strength covers for our weaknesses

Every day ... we can have what we long for - Love, Hope, Joy, & Peace

Every day ... can hold more than we can contain - a sense of holiday, of celebration as we thank Him continually, as we are loved more deeply than we can even imagine, and as this love flows through us (His image bearers) to others.

May this most wonderful time of year
be filled with thanks,
and overflowing with 
Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace -
a sense of holiday every day.

"I pray that God,
the source of hope,
will fill you completely with joy and peace
because you trust in Him. 
Then you will overflow with confident hope
through the power of the Holy Spirit."
(Romans 15:13)


  1. Beautiful! Especially the list of what gives us love, joy, and peace everyday.
    Have a beautifully blessed holiday season!

    1. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season, as well, Janis - thanks for your visit!
