THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Why were the saints,saints? Because they were cheerful when it was difficult to be cheerful, patient when it was difficult to be patient; and because they pushed on when they wanted to stand still, and kept silent when they wanted to talk, and were agreeable when they wanted to be disagreeable. That was all. It was quite simple and always will be.
A Saint has a wide variety of meanings, depending on its usage and the denomination. The original Christian usage referred to any believer who is in Christ and in whom Christ dwells, whether in heaven or in earth
I don’t know about you but I have know some people that are like heavenly saints but who reside here on earth. I think there is a possibility that each and every one of us can become a saint. We become saints not by thinking about it, and certainly not by writing about it, but simply by doing it.
Many of the saints down through the ages echoed their love in their service of others. Reading about the lives of the saints might no longer be fashionable, but there is so much we can learn.
As we begin November it’s good remember with love those who were an important part of our lives. Their love touched our lives deeply and we mark it in a number of different ways. The best way I know to do that is to say THANKS! I’ll be looking for ways to do that all month long. November is Thankful Month.
The pictures today were taken last November. While the trees right now still have a few leaves left on them, soon they’ll all be gone. The pictures today were taken last November.
I hope you all have a super Saturday and can be thankful for it too!
FINAL WARNING !
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS TOMORROW.
It’s best to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed tonight.
53 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Time takes on a slippery quality as the holiday season approaches. Being proactive by starting early saves time and stress as the season's pace quickens. Take major action against the seasonal time crunch with a preseason scheduling session. The goal: to arrange for all those little appointments that slip the mind so easily. Check out your calendars now.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The saint is the man who walks through the dark paths of the world, himself a light.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached over 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2180. for all the saintly people in my life
2181. for a loaf of banana bread with chocolate chips, I’ll be making another today
2182. for the little house wrens at the bird feeders, they do make me smile
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
