What State Do You Live In?

What State Do You Live In?

 

 

As I write this, we are just coming into the Thanksgiving holiday. I will not lie. This year, Thanksgiving won’t be the same. We were missing our Coastie. He is stationed on the opposite side of the country from us.

But despite the empty place at the table, we have so much to be thankful for.

 

There is a song, Thank You Lord For Your Blessings On Me penned by the Easters.

The chorus goes like this:

 

“There’s a roof up above me
I’ve a good place to sleep
There’s food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord
For your blessings on me!”

Philippians 4:11  (KJV) says:

 

“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

Paul reminds us that despite the bad things, the sad things, the storms in life, that we can find something to be thankful for.

 

Those of you who are facing the holidays without loved ones, for whatever reason, lets focus on the blessings that God has provided.

 

If you still have family nearby, hug them and tell them you love them.

 

And those of you who are separated from your loved ones, you’re in my prayers.

 

To be continued  on December 18
