I Hope You Don't Wait Till Thanksgiving

Next Thursday life will stop when families and friends gather around tables to celebrate Thanksgiving. It will be a day for us to express our gratefulness.

I say we don’t wait!


The holiday can be traced all the way back to 1621 and the famous gathering at Plymouth Plantation. It had deep religious roots as those present remembered God and thanked Him for His provision and blessings.

Sadly, I am hearing less and less gratefulness these days. Most people act entitled, and few look to God as their source of life.

You would think that would mean more people are happier than ever before. I mean, if someone has it all under control they should be happy, right?


Zig Ziglar once wrote, “Without gratitude, happiness is rare.”

If you want to be happy, I suggest you start looking up to the One who gives life. And I say, why wait!

Thanksgiving Day is a great day and a great idea. But I suspect it will be a lot more enjoyable for those who are in the habit of being grateful all year long.

If you find yourself less than happy, the answer to your problems is gratefulness.

Don’t Wait!

Leadership Begins at Home,


I pray you have a blessed Thanksgiving week.  

What are you most grateful for?

My Lord, My King, My High Priest, My Savior, My Healer, of course we are all are thankful for Him right? I mean that everything in my life revolves around His amazing love that he gave so freely for me/us all. We could all go on and on about eternal life and the great hope that we have in Christ, right? I mean I hope that you are all as pumped about your future as we all should be.
Of course I am eternally grateful for my dear wife and my 2 children and the ways that He has worked in our lives up to this very moment.
Of course I am so happy that I can count upon His Word each and every day.
I am so thrilled that He finds me someone that He can do His work through.
I am so thankful that He has given me more then I need so that I can give to others from the overflowing abundance of His love.
Nothing can separate me from Him. I am complete and I need no more.
Thankful, totally devoted, immersed, just blessed to the bone!!!!!!!!!!!
