A blessed Thanksgiving I hope you all have had with your family and friends.
Cousin Ruth Brown enjoyed the day with her family and a festive meal. Her brother, Jack Parsley and wife Ann from Georgia go to be there for the big day.
This weather not showing any mercy on us here on the mountain with temperatures getting down into the lower twenties at night now. For those that don’t have the convenience of gas or electric heat, the heat from a wood stove will warm your body through and through and that can’t be topped in my opinion. A lot of people have been cranking up their wood stove to keep warm and glad of their supply of wood and kindling they got up when the weather was warm to keep the home fires burning for our cold nights we’re expecting.
Pastor Chris Moore preaching a terrific sermon on Sunday about always giving thanks to God for everything in your life and how He has blessed you and your family. I’m sure you, like me, have so much to be thankful for. I start out the day praising the Lord for keeping me safe and giving me one more day which I might honor Him. This life as I have said is not about us but all about Him. We can all do things to glorify Him by whatever we say or do to others. Always strive to do the right thing to the people around you and guard what comes out of your mouth as words can hurt and destroy friendships. Nothing good comes out of that for God’s glory does it? Of course, forgiving that person we must do as we were forgiven ourselves by the Lord.
Our prayer list for the week: Carlon and Mai Nell Melton, Gracie Bratcher, (she fell a few weeks back but is on the mend), Charlie Mai Daniel, the families of Paul Lester Seal, and Jeffrey and Lynn Bogle, and Denise Stanton.
