Travels for all of the PAX this Thanksgiving and for those faced with difficult family dynamics.
As we approach Thanksgiving, I want to take just a moment to reflect on gratitude. Gratitude involves wanting what one has rather than having what one wants. Gratitude is a spiritual gift and can be a powerful force force in our lives. My prayer for myself and for each one of us today is that we have hearts that can feel, ears that can hear, and eyes that can truly see our blessings, so that we may live in continual gratitude toward God and those around us.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a crumb into a feast, a shack into a home, a stranger into a brother. . . . Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and gives us a clear vision for tomorrow.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I’m grateful for each of you men here today. For the decision you made to wake up and show up. For the investment you’ve made in me over the past 10 months, whether you were aware of it or not. And, as a result, the investment you made in my family, my marriage, my workplace and this community. For the rest of the days this body is able, I’ll do my best to return the favor.
