OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE
a day to be thankful
What Does It Mean To You?
Are you really thankful for the things God has done foryou—for all of the blessings He has given you; are youeven aware that they come from God or do you think youhave done it on your own? Or, are you too busy to justpause a moment and re
ect on what you have and whereyou are now. Are you thankful for the little things in lifethat you just take for granted? What if all of the blessingswere stopped—because you never take time to thank Godfor all of the little things He does for you. When you look at other people that are less fortunate than yourself or see aperson that is homeless do you stop and say,
“but for thegrace of God, there go I’.
Please take time on this Thanksgiving Day and everyday to give thanks to God. Let us become a thankful people.
We are thankful for you! Each day at the Mission we countour blessings as we see how God has touched your heartand you share with us
nancially, with in-kind gifts and byvolunteering to help.
