It is so hard to believe we are nearing the end of another calendar year! So much has happened in what is truly a short amount of time. This holiday season is definitely our family's favorite time of year! The busyness of life tends to come to a halt as we relish in time spent together reflecting on the Lord’s goodness. For everyone it becomes a time to “count blessings”. Our challenge to you is to continue your list of gratitude beyond the celebration of Thanksgiving. Maybe start a “Blessings” notebook, or journal. Times are tough for

everyone right now. We see weekly, people that are looking for jobs, needing shelter, wondering where they will get food, and how they will support their fam-

question the will of the Lord—there it is, in plain text. We are to show our gratitude and thankfulness to the Lord everyday, in everything. In Psalms it says that we come into His gates with thanksgiving— that’s how start into His presence—where all the awesome things take place! Make sure to also verbalize not only to the Lord, but to your family and friends, how truly grateful you are! You will be amazed at how differently your circumstances might appear! Blessings & Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!

ily. Yet, we are reminded the Word tells us to be “Thankful in everything”“Giving thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thess 5:18. If ever you

support of our prayer and financial partners is how we are able to continue on with what the Lord has asked us to do. Thank you—it goes way beyond our appreciation!

our family to spend time getting to know them “behind the scenes!” Another highlight was meeting Audrey Hammond who was in attendance at the concert. She is the basis for the character of “Erin Walton”, from the “Waltons”, the show written by her brother, based on their family.
