If you don't have family, do you have someone you love? Tell God thanks for that friend. God is so good to us. Take time to tell Him thank you for the good things. Make a list of blessings in your life. It will make you day better.
Take the high road. Go to your celebration to love others.
Leave your agenda at home. You know, if you have an agenda, just get rid of it. Life is about God and others.
Now, I am going to do something a bit different today. I am going to pray and invite you to pray with me. Here we go:
Dear Father, Please use us today to love others. Shine through us and minister to those we spend time with today. Help us use this day of thankfulness to be your servants. Help us show others the joy of life. God, thank you for loving us. Thank you for sending Your son Jesus Christ. We love you God. Thank you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
