Oh How We Are Blessed - Anchored In Him


Psalm 128:1-2
Psalm 128
Blessed are all who fear the LORD,
who walk in his ways.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.

As we approach the holiday season this year let us give thanks to God almighty for all of His blessings. This year we have been blessed not only by God's healing power, but by faithful prayer warriors in our church family and those who receive our web pages.
God was with us all through these all the hard times as He is with you ! ! We can truly relate to the troublesome and tough times that people go through when a sudden illness or tragedy effects a family member.
Often we take for granted the little things of life until we have a close brush with death. Death does not and will not differentiate between rich or poor saved or unsaved nor the color of ones skin. I as many other know and knew that if God called me home that I would be with Him in a better place. The hardest part of death is leaving a loved one behind, but if they are saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ the circle will not be broken.

Our great nation is still fighting a war against evil and we must pray for our great nation and her leaders as well as our Armed Forces and their families. Many families this year will go to a cemetery to visit the grave of a loved one who so willingly gave their life so that you and I may worship freely. May God comfort them during these times and may the Comforter be upon and with them.

As we set down to eat a festive meal of plenty this year just think of the blessings that God has blessed us with and give Him the thanks during your prayer.

As for me my greatest blessing is to say thank you God, I am forgiven, forgiven of my sins. Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ willing to die for me on the old rugged cross at Calvary.

As you read the poem below, please remember those less fortunate than us and also please remember to give to your missionaries, they to sacrifice more than many of us will ever know. 


Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving
Adding all of those ... you know
May your plates be filled with love and happiness
May your blessings overflow

May you gather around the table with the ones you love
Where laughter fills the holiday air
In joyous celebration…
Create some memories for your heart…
For they are the truest treasures beyond compare

Take the ones you love this day
Hold them in your arms so tight
Gaze upon the face that smiles back at you
Then say your thankful prayers tonight

To me Thanksgiving is so much more…
Than the food that I may see
Or the fine china and linens that often decorate the table
It’s in the love we give and share
Giving thanks to God ... whenever we are able

It’s in the beautiful family and friends
You love with all your heart
And still carrying that love with you
When the day should come to an end

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours
And to the family and friends that I know
Thank you for your love and friendship
May your blessings overflow
