Stewardship Prayer

              Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work.                                                                                 I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you see.                                       I give you my tongue to speak your words.                                                                                                 I give you my mind to think as you think.                                                                                                       I give you my spirit so that you may pray in me.                                                                                     I give you my self so that you may grow in me. So that it is you,                                                             Lord Jesus, who lives and works and prays in me. Amen.

Someone To Be Thankful For

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, 1984, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale began his sermon with the following paragraph:

"Now it is November, the month that contains the most American of all holidays: Thanksgiving. We Americans invented Thanksgiving, and this is not surprising because of all the nations in the world, we have the most to be thankful for. We have freedom in a magnificent land that stretches from sea to shining sea. We have science, we have medicine, we have rich farmlands and soaring skyscrapers and great cathedrals and quiet churches. If you are an American, you have every right to be proud and grateful. And there's one thing more you should be thankful for: You should be thankful for you."

If you are precious in God's eyes - and you most certainly are - then be grateful for the life God has given you and the constant blessings which are yours. -

                                                                                              Excerpt from "Be Thankful for You"

Three Kinds of Giving

“There are three kinds of giving: grudge giving, duty giving and thanksgiving. Grudge giving says, ‘I have to’; duty giving says, ‘I ought to’; and thanksgiving says, ‘I want to.’ The latter comes from a full heart. Thanksgiving is an open gate into the love of God.”                —Robert N. Rodenmayer

 

We could learn a lot from crayons:                                                                                             Some are sharp, some are bright, some are duller, some have weird names, and all are different colors … but they all exist very nicely together in the same box.                               - Robert Fulghum
