Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! My family began the day serving others at a community outreach and our children learned how blessed they really are, not just in food but in many things.
Last night while on our way to yet another Thanksgiving gathering, we passed an older lady all bundled up at a bus stop with all her worldly belongings she had. I had my hubby pull over and ran back to give her my sweater. She was asleep so I said to her excuse me. She immediately replied in Spanish, “Hola Mija” which is a sweet Latin term of endearment. I asked if she was cold and that I wanted to give her my sweater and she politely declined and said she had all she needed. I asked her if she had eaten and she said yes she had. She was very sweet and she thanked me again for my concern and that she was fine thank God. This homeless lady taught me a valuable lesson last night. She was thankful for the little things she had and even though she was thankful for more, did not NEED more than she already had.
The majority of us don’t get that concept and unfortunately never will get it but on this thanksgiving I was grateful for this AHA moment. I am thankful for God’s blessings He has given me and the things I don’t have because I have faith that whatever I truly need to survive on this earthly world, God will continue to provide for…no more, no less.
So last night with a little nudge to my heart and full trust, I would raise the bar a bit higher on this book goal. With just 3 days left in our pre-sale purchase of “A Moment with Jesus” devotional and at only 20% of our goal reached, I am starting today a match “Buy One Give Two”campaign!!! For every book purchased, TWO books will be donated back to ministries! Let’s help give back more to our communities then what we need.

Thank you all in advance and have a blessed holiday weekend!
