Thankful Thursday 11-28-19

Thankful Thursday meets Thanksgiving today. The day when Americans collectively pause, gather together around tables, and give thanks for various areas of their lives. This sharing of gratitude creates a foundation for happiness and joy.

Love comes to full expression in various forms on Thanksgiving. Dr. Gary Chapman wrote a book called, The Five Love Languages. He names the love languages as Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Many of us have our love language (or languages) reached on this day.

Gathering gives us quality time. The preparing and serving of a meal meets acts of service. Those enjoying the meal receive the gift of food and good conversation. The words of thanks offered for the food prepared, the talent shared, or the story voiced offer building words of affirmation. And the welcome hugs and departing squeezes of affection shared until the next gathering express love through physical touch.

Many walk a little taller, a little stronger, and with a heart (and stomach) more full after a day of sharing blessings. We sleep better after being fueled both physically and emotionally. A day giving and receiving love in all its forms.

With this day of love as a catapult, we enter into the Christmas season. We prepare our hearts and minds for the greatest expression of love ever given: Jesus Christ. As we walk closer to Christmas, remember this day. A day of giving and receiving love. A day of blessings shared and expressed. Hold onto these actions. Repeat them anew. Edify the love and joy in the lives of those around you and in doing so, you too will be built up in love and joy.

Blessings to you!

Thankful Thursday 11-21-19

Thankful Thursday joyfully awaits Christmas Market! Walking through the doors you enter a familiar space transformed. The energy and spirit of the event buzzes through the building. It wraps you up and carries you through the various areas while lighting a smile to your face.

The change taking place in the building precedes the change (both literal and figurative) that will bless four local charities. Those charities benefit a variety of ages in many ways from education to food to housing and more. These groups meet people where they are now and provide the resources to support a move towards a better tomorrow.

Choice by choice we each are forming and transforming the life we live. These choices range from physical to mental to emotional to spiritual to social and beyond. Jon Gordon encourages us recognize our abilities and use them:

“‪You can’t change your past but you can create your future. ‬

‪Don’t get stuck in thinking about what you could have or should have done. Think about what you can do and will do now to create the life you want. Then start taking action.” -Jon Gordon ‬

Will it be easy? Not always. For in the struggle, we gain strength. And we have been given the gift of community. Helping others and allowing others to help us strengthens our communities. Together we lift each other up. As we choose better for our lives, we choose better for our communities. As change takes place, transformation occurs. Many hands have prepared the Christmas Market. Come be a part of blessing and change.

YOU are invited to the Christmas Market on Friday, November 22 from 4 – 8 PM and on Saturday, November 23 from 7 AM – 1 PM. Details about this event can be found here.

We look forward to having you join us in blessing local charities through the Christmas Market.

Blessings to you!
