In this season of Thanksgiving, we are reminded of our blessings and what we are grateful for in our lives. But I believe that there is more to it than that...much more. It is more than just being thankful for what we have been given…it is being thankful for the blessings bestowed on others. And more importantly the grace to be a blessing for a soul in need, whatever or however that may be.

I truly believe that the grace that God bestows on us is not just for us to hold on to…it is to be shared…for it is not what we have that matters... it is what we give.

So let your grateful heart thank someone, show mercy, forgive, be kind, unconditional, generous…a reflection of God’s grace.

This…this is Thanksgiving.

And in that spirit…I want to thank all of you for sharing with me your souls and your hearts…I am truly grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all those you love…
