Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Giving Thanks

I wanted to share from the verse I got today.

Deuteronomy 8:10

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. 

Thousands of years after this verse was written, in the midst of a hard winter that killed half of their fellow travelers, the Pilgrims who settled America still had a lot to be thankful for. Just before they arrived, a plague had wiped out a hostile tribe that would have killed them. Fifteen years earlier, one member of that tribe had been taken to Europe, was taught English, became a Christian, and came back to America just in time to teach the Pilgrims how to survive. Thanksgiving is a reminder that we have a good God who rescues us in a broken world.

Today's commentary by:
Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, Grace NYC

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, 
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, 
which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your 
minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Happy Thanks Giving to you my dear blog friends.

    educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my search
    for something relating to this.

  11. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we
    could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
