Thanks!

Once again we find ourselves in November.  Social media is being filled with various posts of gratitude, and that is a great thing.  I too am very grateful today for God’s blessings.

Thanksgiving falls immediately after October, which is traditionally pastor appreciation month.  My church, Craft Baptist Church, is an expert at showing appreciation.  I am so grateful for their support and encouragement throughout the year.  There are very few weeks that go by without someone expressing their love to us.  During October, they reached a fever pitch of cards, hugs, kind words, and gifts.  I am overwhelmed by the love and appreciation they show us.   I am grateful to have the privilege of being their pastor.

As children of God, we should always be grateful, not just during November.  Let us use this month to start showing gratitude and then simply not stop.  Why don’t we have a thanksgiving post every week?

Remember 1 Chronicles 16:34:

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    for his steadfast love endures forever!” ESV
