Being thankful in the wake of all the chaos!
Thanksgiving is upon us and it is a time for all of us to be grateful. There is so much to be grateful for but sometimes it doesn’t feel so great to be counting our blessings when tragedies such as what happened in Paris are going on or when road rage results in more tragedy or when an officer, a good man dies trying to do his job. We have had a very tough few months. This is when we should truly count our blessings. We should not let a day go by without counting our blessings and being thankful. We should love our friends and family and let them know it. Amazingly enough, it seems like these tragedies have brought us closer together as humans. How many community members have rallied around the families of Lilly and Officer Webster. How many countries and citizens are rallying around Paris. People are getting tired of the new normal. It feels like we may be wanting to come together on issues and stop worrying about which side of the fence we are on. Let us be Thankful that through all of this, we can stand up and stand together. We can be Thankful that we live in a country where we still have freedom. Thankful that we have people who continue to volunteer to fight for our freedom. We can be thankful that we have a choice of how we respond to the chaos. We have a choice. Please God, let us choose wisely.
