This Thanksgiving I have much to be thankful for, and I’m sure you do too. As we gather around our dinner tables with family and loved ones – I hope you join me in reflecting on many blessings we’ve been given and remember to help those who may be less fortunate. In fact, one of the most rewarding feelings about the holiday season comes when you find ways to help others in your community. Perhaps you can donate to a food bank, or volunteer to help serve Thanksgiving dinner to those in need. You can invite a friend or neighbor to share in your family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Offer prayers for our leaders, for the world, for our nation and for our communities. Whatever you can do will most certainly be appreciated – and that selfless service will fill you up with a wonderful feeling that only comes from helping your fellow man.
Also, make sure you offer a special prayer of protection and thanks to our magnificent service men and women who are still fighting to keep us free – they willingly sacrifice their holidays so we don’t have to.
