Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

We Don’t Get Tired

I was struck by her prayer.  In this tiny, remote church without electricity or sound system or other amenities, the offering had just been taken.  And as the pastor lifted the baskets heavenward, she said, “We don’t get tired of giving You thanks because You never get tired of giving to us.”

“Thanksgiving” is still almost two months away, but I want to start celebrating it today.  Not with turkey (or roasted chicken, in our case) but with a true heart of thanks.  Not in stuffing myself but in service to God and others.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5:18
