"The Joy of Living Comes from a Heart of Thanksgiving."

This has been a fantastic year of fruitful ministry and we are very grateful that you have been part of our lives! 
"What I do you cannot do... what you do, I cannot do. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful."  -- Mother Teresa
If we are followers of Christ then we have the privilege and responsibility to extend the spirit of thankfulness to every day of the year.  Paul urged the Colossians to keep growing in Christ while overflowing with thankfulness (Col. 2:6-7). We are to do everything “in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (Col.3:17). When Abraham Lincoln declared the 1st Thanksgiving Day, he proclaimed that all our blessings “are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.”

This is a fitting day to express gratitude to God.  And, so is tomorrow, and every day that follows.
