#iamthankful: This Week I Want To Thank 3 People For…

I am so excited in a few short days we get to celebrate Thanksgiving. In honor of this month I want to Thank 3 people for life, love, and happiness.

Georgia Beverly, my mom. I want to thank you for giving me life! Life begins in the womb, and if it was not for you being that vessel that brought me forth to live this life, I would not be here. I also like to thank you for being the example of how to live a full and complete life to the fullest. So no only did you give me life, you have been instrumental in helping me live my life. I am thankful for you.

My beautiful kids. Words can not really explain real, true, authentic love. I want to thank my kids for teaching me the real true essence of unconditional love. Love that has no boundaries, love that has no time or space, love that covers all things said and unsaid.

June Wells Baker, a friend I met over 15 years ago. We do not see each other, we do not hang out, or even talk very often, but I am  thankful for her and here is why. No matter what time of day or night I login to  my Facebook account I know that I can go to June’s page and find something that will make me happy. June has always been a happy jovial person and her happiness and fun loving personality bring me joy and happiness. We used to work in Labor and Delivery together during the night shift, and some nights I would laugh until my stomached cramped with June and some of my other co-workers. I want to thank June for being the reason that I laugh and smile many days.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

 

Love and Blessing!

Serve Before Being Served

How can I help someone less fortunate on Thanksgiving?

November is normally the month where most people will spend time sharing the things they are thankful for. I believe this is why this is my favorite month of the year. I tend to take a somewhat different approach. Each day during my devotional time I ask God to use me to help at least one person. It is deeply planted within my fiber to serve others.  As I reflect on the month at hand and brainstorm ways I can help someone less fortunate on Thanksgiving, I came up with one idea that I have pondered for years. This year I am going to volunteer to feed the homeless on Thanksgiving Day. This will give me an opportunity to serve someone else before I serve myself a big plate of food, fun, and laughter with my family.  This may not save the world, but it will be a way to give back and to show my gratitude and thanks to God for choosing me to live such a vibrant and fruitful life.

 

Happy Serving!
