I love to walk our JCPC property and pray. Friday, November 20th, I took a stroll and before I knew it, I was offering a doxology of praise and thanksgiving to our Creator. I noticed the remaining fall colors and watched some leaves float gently to the ground. For each of the colors, I thanked God for the splendor of God's creation. Offer God a thank you prayer as you look at this picture.
Along my stroll, I came upon a blessing that all read as they leave the JCPC campus. I'm thankful for our church as we continually strive to share the gospel throughout our community and the world. Give thanks for a mission(s) of the church.
As I turned around to head back to my office, a car pulled up with the driver sporting a smiling face. It was Sue Dodd on her way to North Fulton Hospital to deliver a packet of CanCare information for the Director of Development. I was so grateful that Sue was going to North Fulton to share what God is doing in our community through CanCare. Sue told me how this mission brings her joy and she said she was thankful for being able to travel and share the good news. She has been recovering from a horrible auto accident and she beamed an appreciative smile as she gave God thanks. Give thanks for answering the call to be disciples who share good news.
This reflection is my Thanksgiving card to you. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow...
Prayer for Today
For all of your blessings, O God, we give you thanks and praise; for both blessings known and unknown, we bow our heads with humble gratitude. Amen.
